Research Interests:

I attended Mesa State College over 25 years ago and planned on developing a career in Agricultural Science, I soon discovered that my interests in Biology far exceeded my interest in Agriculture. Biological systems are extremely unique, I never once have found myself tired of what I am doing. I also realized, Biology has so many different areas and so many amazing and intelligent people. UCCS is wonderful place to come to work every day. I also realized that showing others how much I love Biology gives others them a peek of what an exciting field Biology can be.
