    I am starting my seventh year teaching in Loudoun County Public Schools and I am very proud to be a founding teacher at Riverside High School.  I received a PhD in Reproductive Physiology from North Carolina State University with an emphasis in Biotechnology, an M.S. in Animal Physiology from  Clemson University and a B.S. from Virginia Tech in Animal Science.  I am  a native of Fairfax, VA and have lived in North Carolina, South Carolina and Sweden.  I have lived in Loudoun County for 18 years.  My son is a senior at Riverside HIgh School this year and my daughter will be a sophomore at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA.

    I teach Dual Enrollment class and I am an  Adjunct professor at Northern Virginia Community College and an Associate Professor at George Mason University to provide students with college credit and a college level class experience. 
     
    This year, I am teaching Independent Science Research and AP/DE Biology classes at Riverside High School.  I am also excited to be the Science National Honor Society Sponsor and on the Capstone Committee
