Education: BA Biology and Spanish from Augustana College, MS Elementary Education from DePaul

I love inspiring kids to get out into nature and to explore their surroundings. I think children need to do things like dig in the dirt, splash in puddles, and climb trees to tap into their natural creativity and curiosity. Kids Science Labs has brought out the kid in me through the hands-on (and wonderfully messy) activities and discovering my own questions that I have about the world!  

Interests:  Travel, Photography, triathlon, and cooking (when I find the time)
