I have been on the faculty since January of 2000, and before
joining the faculty here I taught classes at the University of Michigan, in the College of Pharmacy.
My teaching responsibilities here are varied. I teach
four courses (Biochemistry, Chemical Analysis, Introductory Chem II,
and Chemistry of Antibiotics). In addition to teaching I am
involved in several outreach programs
that span my work here at the college and in the community.
I have been married for 16 years and I am the mother of two children.
I have been working on the enzyme nitric oxide synthase for some years
now, first as a post-doctoral fellow in the lab of Dr.
Michael Marletta at the University of Michigan and now here at
Kalamazoo College. I enjoy doing research,
and especially love working with students at the undergraduate level.
My hobbies are watching sports (especially those involving my
kids), watching CSI, bowling, and photography.
