Hello! I’m a Senior Science Educator and the Director of Resources for Science Teaching and Learning at BSCS Science Learning, a nonprofit organization based in Colorado Springs, CO. At BSCS we conduct educational research, provide professional learning and leadership development for educators, and develop instructional materials. As an instructional materials designer, my focus is on how teaching and learning in the biological sciences can support social and environmental justice outcomes.

Prior to BSCS I spent about 10 years in Washington, DC, working first for AAAS Project 2061 and later for the Smithsonian Institution. In my free time you’ll find me out on Colorado’s plentiful hiking trails with my camera, my partner Oliver, and our rescue dogs, Sapphie and Opal.
