I am the Education Liaison with Boulder County Parks and Open Space. I love presenting programs for students, families, and adults. My favorite topics are wildlife and astronomy!
Before becoming a Boulder County Parks and Open Space Volunteer Naturalist in 1998, I worked as an elementary school librarian. I am an author of the Nature Detectives insert in IMAGES quarterly magazine. Through Nature Detectives I hope to reach readers of all ages to heighten curiosity and promote exploration of our wonderful Parks and Open Spaces. I hope the articles and our Nature Detectives in the Field programs encourage kids to connect with our amazing natural world their entire life.
I got hooked on being in nature as a kid wandering the palmetto scrub and backwaters of west coast Florida in search of critters and fossils. Though a third-generation geologist, I’ve never earned a dime with my geology degree. For 3 years as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ghana, I taught secondary school geology, chemistry, math, and general science. A second degree in graphic design led to a career in technical and scientific illustration. I have been volunteering as a naturalist since 1976.
