I have had the pleasure of working at the University of Iowa’s Paleontology Repository, College of Nursing, and the Museum of Natural History. Most recently I designed and taught innovative science curriculum for the East Campus alternative high school program in Muscatine, Iowa. My career goal is to create accessible, authentic, community-focused and science-skill oriented experiences for all students, leading to an informed, constructive, and scientific-minded community.
