I am a retired science teacher. I last taught Chemistry at Clarksburg High School in Maryland in 2020. I taught for 17 years, moving around with my husband - a retired Army soldier. 

In 2013, while teaching AP Environmental Science at Frederick High School, I became a certified NOAA Climate Steward Educator and had the opportunity to receive training at NCAR (National Center for Atmospheric Research). I also attended training with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and the Climate Reality Project. I'm also a volunteer with the Jacksonville chapter of Citizens Climate Lobby.

As a member of the Middletown Sustainability Committee, I gave a one hour talk in December 2018, entitled "Understanding Climate Change." And from there, this website was born. In 2020, I was awarded the Frederick County, MD Sustainability Award - Individual category.

I'm now volunteering in Florida - sea turtle patrol and shorebird nest protection at Little Talbot Islands SP - horseshoe crab tagging at Ft. Clinch SP - removing invasive plants with the Invader Raiders - and environmental education with Wild Amelia. I'm on the Board of Conserve Nassau and the Board for Florida EnvirothonI'm currently pursuing my Florida Master Naturalist certification. 

I hope to teach climate science to as many people who want to listen. I teach for my children (and all the world's children) and the future Earth they will inherit.
