I earned my PhD in geophysics from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities and my BS in geology and geophysics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  Before coming to WISCIENCE, I taught general education and geophysics courses at James Madison University, and later served as the Science Outreach Coordinator at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.
 
At WISCIENCE, I coordinate service-learning coursework for undergraduate and graduate students and oversee the service peer leadership students. I also serve as the director of the Adult Role Models in Science program (ARMS), which supports many partnerships between the university and surrounding communities.  https://wiscience.wisc.edu/ARMS-program
