I am excited to spend the year exploring the world through the lens of science with you.
I grew up in the Bay Area and attended UC Berkeley, where I obtained my undergraduate degree in Molecular Environmental Biology, and a minor in Forestry, followed by a teaching credential from Sonoma State University. In addition to teaching science in the classroom, I’ve taught snowboarding in Lake Tahoe, rock climbing in local crags and the Sierra Nevada, as well as backpacking and orienteering. Prior to classroom teaching, I worked in South Lake Tahoe for the State Water Resource Board, studying sources and effects of pollution on the clarity of Lake Tahoe. My love of Marin County began with a four-year stint as a naturalist at Walker Creek Ranch, Marin County Outdoor School.
