Before becoming a teacher, I spent 10 years working in molecular biology labs studying genetic diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer’s and schizophrenia.  Working with successful scientists throughout my career has driven me to mentor others, and finally led me to teach.

A passion for exploring different cultures has taken me to all corners of the world.  I spent a total of 9 years teaching abroad before settling in The Dalles. 

As a teacher, I have put great effort in to passing on this inspiration and motivation to encourage students to develop a realistic approach to the real world of science as an exciting, modern, progressing subject that has worldwide impacts and implications.
