Welcome to my profile page!  My journey to the teaching profession has been a long road, but well worth the effort.  I majored in horticultural sciences at UNL and worked for several years in the horticulture and plant pathology research greenhouses.  I have always enjoyed working with plants, and I am an avid gardener to this day.   After graduating from UNL, I traveled to the east coast to complete an MS in plant pathology at North Carolina State University.   My research focused on diseases affecting Irish potatoes and I worked with growers to reduce pollution from fertilizers into groundwater reservoirs.  In addition to my research responsibilities, I was also a teaching assistant for a plant pathology graduate course.  This was one of first times I knew that I enjoyed teaching and helping people to understand science. 

I am now in my 9th year at North Star and continue to be a proud Gator!
