Welcome to Life Science
Degrees and Certifications:
I grew up in Southern California. I began college at 16 attending the local community college. After I graduated with my associates degree, I moved to Arizona for a year. After Arizona, I packed up my life and moved to Hawaii to attend the University of Hawaii at Manoa to major in marine biology. After a year I decided to switch to a major in biology. While in college I took classes than let me be near the ocean. I took a field trip class where I saw elephant seals and humpback whales. I took a lab class where I snorkeled a few coral reefs in Hawaii. I loved going to college in Hawaii. After getting my Bachelors and my teaching credentials (I was in college for 10 years!), I moved to Oregon with my husband in 2015. In 2016, we welcomed our first child, Samantha, into the world!
