Professional Background

I started my career as lab technician for a biomedical company in NY (where I grew up). From 1993-1998, I worked for the University of Florida as a biologist and lab manager of a water quality lab at the Everglades Research and Education Center. From 1991-2006 I was a full-time graduate student studying wildlife biology, conservation, sustainability and environmental education.  

In 2009, I started working at Aims Community College. I am a professor of Biology and Environmental Science and have served as the Chair of the Science Department for 7 years (2014-2021).

Aside from teaching at Aims, I have taught courses at other colleges and have taught at the middle and high school level. I also co-authored 3 children’s books about mountain lions. 

Personal Interests

I enjoy teaching biology and environmental science online and working toward perfecting the online learning experience for my students. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 teenagers, running and working out.  I also enjoy reaching scientific journals to stay current in my field of science, teaching science and online learning.
