Born and raised in Ohio, I have combined social activism and biological science all throughout my career, and that continues into my retirement. My graduate students, undergraduate researchers, and postdoctoral fellows uncovered many intricacies of how genes are selected to reveal their information in a regulated way. Proper selection and decoding of genes is essential for normal development and good health.
I have always had a passion for teaching, in and out of the laboratory, and for improving education at the college and precollege level. Further, I have a strong interest in increasing diversity among professionals in biological sciences-related careers, and I continue to work at the local, national and international level to create positive change in education and increase representation in biology careers. Equity and access to strong education opportunities are a major retirement mantra for me. Biology Scholars Program students exemplify the best of working toward a better world for everyone, and it is my honor to continue to work with them at Berkeley and after their graduation.
