• I am a science geek. I feel about science the way some people feel about music, or art, or sports – a total and complete emotional connection. I think in science.

    For me, there’s nothing better than helping people see the beauty of science. I love to untangle a complicated subject into its parts, and explain it so that anybody can understand what’s happening. Let me show you my world…

    My story, “The Gift of the Dying Dog,” was a finalist in the Denver Women’s Press Club Unpublished Authors 2013 Competition. My book A Natural History of Trail Ridge Road: Rocky Mountain National Park’s Highway to the Sky, was published in March 2015.
    I have been a member of Lighthouse Writer’s Workshop since 2005, and a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators since 2013.
    My experiences are wide and varied. With degrees in Natural Resources Management for Colorado State University, I’ve worked on strip mines, Indian reservations, and nuclear and hazardous waste sites. Currently, I’m a volunteer with Jefferson County Open Space, and a trainer with SCL Lutheran Hospital’s Pet Therapy Program.
