I absolutely love science and am thrilled to be joining the HRVHS science team. I am looking forward to getting to know you all this year. I will be teaching Patterns Physics on B days.
A little bit about me: In addition to loving science, my passion is enjoying and protecting the natural world. For the past 7 years, I have been the director of Cascade Mountain School, an outdoor science school located in Trout Lake, WA. I created Cascade Mountain School after realizing it was a beautiful intersection of my passions: environmental stewardship, youth education, and experience of the natural world. I received my BS and MS in Earth Systems, an interdisciplinary environmental science program, from Stanford University. Before founding Cascade Mountain School, I worked on ocean conservation issues for the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation in San Francisco. I live Hood River with my husband, Dave, and my two boys, Davey (5) and George (2). In my free time, I enjoy hiking, yoga, meditation, personal energetic empowerment, and trapeze.
