I received my undergraduate degree in biochemistry and molecular biology from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. I received my master's degree in biochemistry from the University of Colorado. I have two children who have attended Boulder High School. I really enjoy mountain biking, skiing, and reading books by Scandinavian authors. I have been teaching at Boulder High School for 12 years and can't imagine a better working or learning environment. My goal as a science teacher is to have each of my students become scientifically literate by analyzing data and information in order to make informed decisions in their life.
