I grew up in St.Louis, Missouri, where I developed a love for libraries, the outdoors and science.  After earning a B.A. in chemistry from Franklin and Marshall College, l spent two years teaching chemistry in Niger, West Africa, as a member of the Peace Corps. I then did my graduate work at the University of Utah in the laboratories of Dr. Cynthia Burrows, where I studied DNA damage mediated by manganese and enjoyed exploring Utah.  After teaching at The Evergreen State College, I returned inland in 2003 and have been teaching chemistry at Lewis-Clark State College ever since.  In addition to teaching and writing, I enjoy spending time with my family, painting and exploring the outdoor opportunities in the region.
