Here you will find more About Me than the majority of people who know me know. It is essentially my Curriculum Vitae (CV) broken up into different rubrics. I feel somewhat like a cat that has nine lives. I have had multiple “previous” lives (student, scientist, environmental policy lecturer) and currently have several “new” lives (expert English lecturer, actress, and writer). Of course, all of these activities contribute to who I am as a person and as with all of us; my past activities have influenced how I approach my current work. This is what makes each of us unique. In my case, integrating my scientific background into my current activities as educator, actress and writer gives me a unique perspective on the world. But as it turns out, once you are in this world, you discover that many others have made similar transitions and finding out how to make your own unique contribution to the greater good is where all the fun is. So here is my attempt at integrating all that I have learned and sharing it with others. Have fun!
