Degrees and Certifications:
I was raised in Massachusetts and have lived in North Carolina for 10 years. I have been in Utah for the last 25 years. I have 8 grown children and 14 grandchildren. I love dogs and have a black lab named Forbes. I love reading novels and scientific documentaries.
My undergraduate degree is in Medical Technology and I worked as a Medical Technologist for 10 years in Chemistry and Microbiology.
My graduate degree is in Biology education and I have taught at Brown University, Salve Regina College in Newport, RI, Rhode Island College in Providence, RI and Utah Valley University.
I enjoy teaching here at UCAS because the students are dedicated to their education. I believe anyone can succeed if given the right opportunities. I love biology and hope to instill a love and appreciation for this subject in all my students, even if they do not go into this field. I believe education is a lifelong learning process from which we never graduate.
