I am a Wildlife Ecologist and have worked as a science educator at the secondary and post-secondary levels. I enjoy connecting students to the beauty and wonder of the natural world. Currently, I teach high school science at Auburndale High School in rural central Wisconsin. Courses taught include: Life Science, College Biology (dual credit with Univ. of WI-Oshkosh), Anatomy & Physiology, Environmental Science and Biotechnology. In addition to my face-to-face teaching, I teach 3 fully online high school courses for Wisconsin Virtual School: AP Biology, AP Environmental Science & Biotechnology. In addition to teaching, I am a NSTA Senior Online Advisor & NSTA Web Seminar Moderator and currently serve in a leadership role as the District 5 Director for the Wisconsin Society of Science Teachers (WSST). In the past, I have enjoyed facilitating teacher professional development as an adjunct instructor (UW-Stevens Point) and Science Curriculum Specialist (CESA 5, WI).
