Biography

B.S. in Biology (concentration in Marine Science), University of Tampa
M.S. in Microbiology, University of South Florida
 
I have worked in industry and academia in QC, management, research and agriculture. However, I have never had a job that is as fun and as rewarding as teaching is. I have taught Microbiology, Molecular and Cellular Biology, Marine Science, Environmental Science, General Biology--traditional and online, Zoology, and Botany. I love to: go on road trips with my family, read, herb garden, camp and hike, look at stuff under a microscope, and learn. I have lived in CO, MD, FL, NJ, back to FL, and finally here in California.  My favorite places are: the beach, a salt marsh/estuary, an alpine meadow, and home!
