I was raised in Provo and graduated from Timpview loooong ago. I tried chemical engineering and computer science at BYU and didn’t care much for them. However, I also started working at the Bean Life Science Museum, where I fell in love with teaching science. I eventually graduated with a teaching degree in biology and mathematics.
I love nature and learning about the fascinating organisms who share our planet. I adore my granddaughters and enjoy sharing science with people of all ages. I am an advocate for LGBTQ people, those from other countries, and all those who don’t always fit in. I love people from all walks of life, and I celebrate their differences.
