Biography

I moved to Colorado in 2007 with my husband and since then we have expanded our family by 4 sons! I grew up just outside of Dallas, TX and after college I joined the Naval Nuclear Power Program. I served for 8 years including overseas during Operation Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom after the 9/11 attacks. After my time in the service I worked as an operator at the Advanced Test Reactor at the Idaho National Laboratory (where I met my husband!) His job brought us to CO, and I stayed home to be a full time mom. Now that my baby is in Kindergarten (!) I am excited to share my love of physics will anyone who will listen. Having grown up helping my mom in schools I feel like I am finally coming home. If I have spare time, I love to read and have family game nights.
