I'm currently the Program Assistant with the Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Organismal Biology. My main responsibilities include promoting the department via social media and print materials as well as supporting the department's graduate students in their academic career.
I also teach an Honors Seminar entitled Buffy to Wonder Woman: Super Powered Women in Pop Culture each spring semester.
Before joining ISU, I worked briefly at Principal Financial group and for 7+ years with the education team at the Science Center of Iowa. I began my career at SCI as a summer camp intern and worked my way up to Programs Director, overseeing upgrades to the Challenger Learning Center and renovations to the original site, as well as playing a key role in the opening of the new downtown location.
