This is where I live.
This is the Snowy Range in southeastern Wyoming, fifty miles from my home in Laramie. Wyoming is extreme, sparsely populated, and breathtakingly beautiful. But I was not always from the land of granite, snow, and endless blue skies.
I'm a mid-westerner, born and raised in Cincinnati, OH. My education took me to Duke University where I earned my BSE in Biomedical Engineering and then to Emory University where I earned my PhD in Neuroscience.
With my research on human perception and my strong science background, I forged a path into the world of informal education and science communication. In 2003, I joined the Museum of Life and Science in Durham, NC. There I researched and developed interactive exhibits, wrote interpretive copy, managed projects, and evaluated visitor behavior.
In 2009, I moved to Laramie, WY and began consulting for museums and helping professionals communicate science. I develop exhibits and programming for museums, help researchers teach science, and write labels, reports, grants, and more.
