Hello. Welcome to my home on the web. A little bit about me: I am the Program Director for the Iowa Academy of Science, a non-profit organization with the mission of promoting science research, science education, and public understanding of Science throughout Iowa. My academic background is mostly in field biology, earth sciences, and science education. I have a B.A. in Natural History Interpretation and a Masters Degree in Science, both from the University of Northern Iowa. In my free time I hang out in cyberspace, read, geocache, knit, spoil my cat, volunteer for NASA and Girl Scouts and camp.
