Biography

A little about me!  My undergraduate degree is in general biology.  Work towards my first master’s degree (in plant systematics) included three years of teaching the laboratory portions of undergraduate and graduate level science courses and work as a technician in both a molecular biology and an electron microscopy laboratory at the University of Georgia.  This degree led to a career as a field biologist for the US Forest Service and for a private company in Atlanta.  As a field biologist, I conducted wetlands delineations, protected species surveys, and floristic surveys as well as provided environmental impact statements for research areas throughout the southeastern United States.  For 20 years, I worked in conjunction with Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School to create an herbarium (plant collection) housing nearly 2000 specimens of plants found in Rabun County, Georgia.  My current research involves documenting the flora of Gordon County Georgia.  Eventually, I pursued a second master’s degree (in science education) to become a teacher.   For the last 11 years, I have taught honors biology, AP biology, dual enrollment biology and human anatomy and physiology at Calhoun High School.  This is my fourth year with Dalton State College and my second at Chattahoochee Technical College.
