Brief Bio:

My degree in Resource Management, biology and environment education was put to use as Boscobel High School where I was hired late in the first quarter for a physical science/biology position. I stayed there for 2 years before working on a health degree/license at UW-Madison. In 1983 I was hired to teach biology and sixth grade science in West Germany at the Frankfurt International School. I loved the school, children and the adventure of working in Central Europe provided. I stayed well beyond my 2-year contract and returned home in 1991 to work on a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction, Science Education at UW-Madison.

During my graduate program I worked as a T.A. supervising student teachers in secondary science. After moving to Oshkosh I worked in a similar capacity and also taught environmental education for the Biology Department as well as elementary science methods in the C&I department. For 3 years I directed the CAP Program for the College of Letters and Science and in 1999 I was hired as the Director of Field Experience where I currently continue to serve the College.
