Education:

University of Wisconsin-Madison:
B.S.   Biochemistry May 1990 
M.S.   Endocrinology and Reproductive Physiology Dec. 1992  
Ph.D. Cell and Molecular Biology: Developmental Biology Dec. 1995  

Research:

Research interests include prenatal programming metabolic and reproductive disorders, programming of the stress axis, neuroendocrine regulation of reproductive behavior and fertility, and the physiology/epidemiology of gestational weight gain in humans. I am interested in the physiological consequences that environmental disruption during important developmental stages can have on adult health.  In particular, I am interested in how the hypothalamus is programmed during its development.

Biography:

I’m originally from Northern California and lived in Bethel and Skagway before moving to Sitka in 1992. I enjoy helping students build a firm foundation in the topic that will serve them well in their careers. I am active in the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS).  As part of HAPS I helped develop standards for undergraduate human anatomy and physiology courses taught in the US and Canada. I am committed to quality eLearning opportunities and developed and delivered the first distance science courses offered by UAS. As Sitka’s lab director I currently help oversee the lab support portion of UAS Sitka Distance Science courses which have grown to involve multiple faculty members and currently serve over 200 students each semester.  I believe it is important to give back to my community by doing what I can to enrich science literacy, assist in community-based scientific research, and help create science-related opportunities for everyone, especially K-12 students.

Community Projects:

  • Served as an invited researcher for Scientist in the Schools programs at elementary, middle, and high school levels.
  • Helped establish science clubs at the local elementary and middle school that give kids a chance to interact with scientists and collect data for meaningful research projects.
  • Found opportunities for K-12 students to meet and work with scientists from the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, UCSF, UAF and Project Budburst.
  • Assisted with marine invertebrate identification for community BioBlitzes and provided intertidal ecology expertise for many community organizations.
  • Involved in a project to revisit historical work done in Sitka by Ed (Doc) Ricketts and link it to modern intertidal survey protocols.

I am particularly interested in the ecology and functional anatomy of intertidal organisms, especially with respect to predator-prey relationships.  I am also very involved in marine invasive issues and research, particularly with respect to invasive tunicates. I am a member of the Alaska Marine Invasive Species subcommittee and the Didemnum vexillum Rapid Response Team.

Education:

B.Sc. degree in Fish and Wildlife Biology from the U. of Missouri/Columbia

Other:

I was employed 5 years in a large trout production facility in Washington state and moved to Prince Wm. Sound, AK in 1980 to work at a large Pacific salmon enhancement facility. In 1982 I moved to Sitka to work for Northern SE Regional Aquaculture and help develop the Medvejie Salmon Hatchery. I left NSRAA in 2003 but remained in Sitka, AK where I still reside and enjoy working with students and helping to develop the Fisheries Technology Program for UAS. In the summer months I operate Sitka Sound Tours using the 27’ Quiet Mon to show visitors around beautiful Sitka Sound, relating information about the vibrant fisheries that Alaska enjoys and getting to meet new people on a daily basis. Sportfishing for king salmon takes precedence over nearly all other activities during the summer months. Camping, hiking and hunting get squeezed in as alternative activities when not fishing... it’s a tough life.
