Learn to master and love science and math

Scientist, educator, gamer, dreamer. I have worked as a member of technical staff at NASA?s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and as an ecologist at the National Park Service. Much as I enjoyed the art of science, I found that I enjoyed teaching even more. Science, math, nature, and life are intimately connected. When I help others to find joy in science and math, I know I am helping to create a better world - stronger, safer, and happier. Research shows that relevance and engagement are importa... [more]

Biology

I have a B.A. in Physics, M.S. in Ecology, and four years of experience as a quantitative ecologist with the National Park Service. Much as I enjoyed being a biologist, I found that the very best days on that job were the ones where I was a teacher - designing and delivering science outreach programs. So I switched gears. Now, as an independent teacher and curriculum designer, I work full time doing what I love - promoting the understanding and appreciation of science.

Botany

I love sunshine, puzzles, and trees. Putting those together led me to earn an M.S. in plant ecology, and then to a job as a quantitative ecologist with the National Park Service. At the NPS, I trained and led vegetation field crews in the collection of community-level botanical data, and then built mathematical models to seek out patterns in those data.


Biostatistics

I love sunshine, puzzles, and trees. Putting those together led me to earn an M.S. in plant ecology, and then to a job as a quantitative ecologist with the National Park Service. At the NPS, I trained and led vegetation field crews in the collection of community-level botanical data, and then built mathematical models to seek out patterns in those data. As one of just two mathematical biologists in the science arm of the park, I was the go-to person for data and analysis questions.
