Bachelors of Science, Public Health Promotion/Education, Northern Arizona University, 2011
I am proud to work with amazing people at the Center for Science Teaching and Learning!Prior to joining the team, I worked as an administrative assistant/legal assistant for over five years in both the defense and law-enforcement sectors, and was awarded the Arizona employee of the year, in 2013. I am also a professional graphic designer, photographer and web designer with over ten years’ experience. My primary passions in life are helping others, continuously learning, and in improving communities.I enjoy volunteering with Search and Rescue with the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office, as well as with the National Park Service at the Grand Canyon, and strive for 50 to 100 hours of volunteering each year as a personal goal. Similar to CSTL’s mission statement, my mission is to have a deep and lasting impact on the community/world through innovative partnerships, programs and services, which is why I was drawn to this department.
