I have enjoyed teaching Chemistry and Physics in Williams Bay since 1993.  A Wisconsin native, I grew up in Reedsburg and attended UW-Madison, where I was a member of the Alpha Chi Sigma Professional Chemistry Fraternity and volunteered as a lab assistant for the Institute for Chemical Education (ICE) Program.  After receiving my undergraduate degree at Madison, I taught science for three years in Cadott, Wisconsin before accepting my current position in Williams Bay.  In 1995, I was only one of two Wisconsin teachers (Mrs. Hanson was the other) to be chosen to fly on NASA’s Kuiper Airborne Observatory.  I received my master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from UW-Whitewater in 2001.
