To find a place that will let me teach about the wonders of the insect world
My area focuses on Insect Education and Outreach.
My research evaluates the different types of outreach programming in the department for its impact on student and teacher content knowledge of entomology and their interest in the field.
Accidently. I always loved insects and creepy crawlies, but I did not think about it as a career. When getting my Master’s degree in Science and Environmental Education, one of my classes was cancelled so I needed another right away to maintain full time. So I joined an aquatic entomology class just for fun, but soon I was hooked on bugs.
The predaceous diving beetle – the adult and larval form. They are amazing to watch, great predators, and aquatic insects will always be my first choice
Reading, gardening, knitting, painting, World of Warcraft, movies, hiking, and canning different foods
Ricotta cookies – the amazing combination of cheese and sweets
Ferngully: The Last Rainforest or The Silence of the Lambs
The Neverending Story by Michael Ende or The Lorax by Dr. Seuss
I would love to see Australia and New Zealand
