History of Education and Employment
I graduated with a B.S. in Ecology and Conservation Biology from the University of Texas in Austin in 2002 and an M.F.A in Creative Writing and Poetry from San Diego State University in 2005.

I went on to manage the San Diego EcoCenter for Alternative Fuel Education ( Then I taught online for Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth, teaching their distance writing course "Where Art Meets Science."

From there I managed websites for the University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources in San Diego County, and finally found my way to UC San Diego's BioBridge program, where we unite science research and science education in San Diego.
