Employee Bio

I received my BS in Biology and MS in Marine-Estuarine Sciences at WWU.  My emphasis focused on the intertidal ecosystem and the adaptations of marine invertebrates.  I am a strong advocate for conservation and preservation of sensitive habitats, especially in and around Puget Sound.  I have been An instructor at the college level since 1996.  I have taught Biology for majors and non-majors, Zoology, Environmental Science, Oceanography and Marine Biology.  My research aspirations is focused on life in the intertidal zone and the adaptations of the species that live there.  I am always looking for students who are interested in being a part of Marine explorations
