As an Idaho Falls native I am thrilled to be back to my old stomping grounds after seven years away.  Four of those years were spent earning a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Biology through Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon, one semester of which was conducted in Avignon, France.  I then moved up north to Moscow, Idaho where I researched the spread of antibiotic resistance in bacteria for my Master’s thesis.  I love studying science, particularly biology, and enjoy sharing my passion for science with my students here at White Pine.
