ABOUT ME

I am a physicist, informal educator, science communicator, and diversity and inclusions change agent. I have a decade of progressive leadership experience in education and public outreach (EPO) and equity, diversity, and inclusion. I am an enthusiastic and engaging public speaker with an affinity of explaining complex science topics to a variety of audiences large and small.

SPEAKING

I am a sought-after public speaker. I have given hundreds of interactive presentations to all ages from K to grey about Hubble Space Telescope, James Web Space Telescope (JWST), and the Very Large Array (VLA) and the Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array (ALMA). My presentations are designed to inspire and teach people about the amazing wonders of the universe and our place in it. Each talk is tailored to the audience and meant to be interactive.
