I was born in Chicago, and though on some level I still consider myself to be a Chicagoan (go Bears, Bulls, Hawks, White Sox and this year everyone's got to be a Cubs fan!), I have now lived in Minnesota longer than I have lived anywhere else. There sure is a lot to like about Minnesota, you betcha!
I have been working at Harding, with our wonderful students, since 1998. During that time, I have taught classes in Biology, IB Biology, Environmental Science, Earth Science, and even some 9th grade Physical Science early in my career. Prior to choosing a career in education, I did agricultural research at the University of Minnesota and sales/administration with a couple of private companies.
Nowadays, my free time is devoted to my daughter (born in 2005), taking full advantage of the time when she still wants to be with her dad!
