I love learning about science, and look forward to seeing my students catch that enthusiasm for the wonder of our world. I am a graduate of Western Carolina University with a BS concentration in Zoology, Chemistry and Parks and Recreation Mgt. I have worked for the government, the private sector, as well as Riverbanks Zoo and try to bring those experiences to my classes.I spend most of my free time hiking, road biking, researching animal behavior, and kayaking the local waterways. I work giving Eco tours and FaithFloats for Yadkin River Adventures in the warm months.
I love spending time with my daughter, Dorsey, who attends ASU, and my dogs hanging out at home or in the woods around my home.
Each day I expect my students to come to class prepared, but mostly to come each day with an OPEN MIND.
