“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.”
Teaching & Education
You will learn with me when taking courses in chemistry, including laboratory.
- BS, Chemistry, University of Kentucky
- MS, Organic Chemistry, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
My experience includes working in research and development of structural adhesives and coatings, emphasizing electronics applications, and teaching at NGU since 2014.
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.
