"I love it when students have an 'aha' moment and make a new connection or develop a deeper understanding! In the sciences, I think these opportunities come about through authentic, hands-on investigations and 'discrepant events': where the outcomes of a phenomenon don't match our previously held notions and forces us to address misconceptions or misunderstandings."
Fun Fact #1 — I'm an amateur rockhound.
Fun Fact #2 — I raced sled dogs for over 20 years!
Fun Fact #3 — I have a (soon to be) 5 year old daughter who is awesome and seems to be interested in science as much as I am.
I choose to work at NOVA because It's a community of learners that care for each other, what more could I ask for?
