“My concern is that we are taking the fun and wow out of science in the middle and high school years, so I want to help students create a connection between what they learn in class and their everyday experience. I think one of the best ways I can be a witness for Christ is by leading others to appreciate the glory and complexity of God’s creation.”

  • My Story

    I moved from corporate R&D to full-time motherhood when my family arrived in this area in 2000. After spending time volunteering in the public school system and working with the children’s ministry at my church, I became interested in teaching as a profession. I began as an adjunct instructor at NGU, eventually becoming a full-time faculty member.

    Favorite Course to Teach: General Chemistry, because that course is often the first in-depth view of chemical principles that students encounter.
