Upper School Science

Science Teacher


I am excited to be a part of Menlo School’s science faculty and to work collaboratively to foster students’ curiosity in and out of the classroom. Teaching biology at the high school and undergraduate levels has given me the opportunity to infuse cutting-edge research into the curriculum. What’s better than learning about science as it is being done?

I have served as a National Science Foundation science fellow teaching high school biology, conducted STEM educational research as a fellow for the Institute of Scientist & Engineer Educators, and designed/facilitated workshops for students and mentors as a STEM communication instructor with Hawaii’s Akamai Workforce Initiative. Most recently, I worked with the Science Internship Program, a summer-long program that enables intellectually curious and motivated high-school students to participate in cutting-edge STEM research, and Google to expand these opportunities to universities and high schools locally and internationally.

I love working with people and spend a lot of my free time with my family (two kids keep me busy!) I also enjoy traveling and experiencing new cultures and food. In the summers, you can find me sailing in the beautiful Swedish archipelago.
