•    Cathy L. Whitlow 

    I started my career in science as a basic research lab scientist at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.  After 4 years of basic research on calcium pumps and other cell membrane mechanisms,  I worked as a lab scientist at a contract lab supplying tissue cultures to researchers at the National Institutes of Health.  I have been teaching biology for 30 years.  I have been at PFHS since its opening in 1997!

    I have a B.S. in Zoology from the University of Maryland, a secondary teaching certificate from George Mason University and a M.S in Biology from George Mason University.

    I am also an adjunct professor at Northern Virginia Community College, Loudoun Campus since 2007 and an adjunct professor at George Mason University since 2018.
