I have over 40 years of experience including commercial, academic research, and teaching positions in molecular biology and microbiology. I received my BS degree in Microbiology at the University of Wyoming in 1970 followed by a Ph.D. degree in Microbiology in 1974 at UCLA, studying cholera genetics. From there I went on to investigate Herpesvirus latency as a postdoctoral fellow again at UCLA. I then became an assistant professor of microbiology at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. I taught medical students and investigated the possible association between Multiple Sclerosis and Coronavirus infection. I left academia and worked as the Clinical Director at a diagnostic lab where I supervised microbial diagnostic testing and paternity testing genetics for ten years. Over my career, I have worked with many different viruses (HSV, HIV, HBV, HCV, CMV), bacteria (E. coli, Listeria, Salmonella), and parasites (Cryptosporidium, Malaria). This includes academic research, diagnostics, and food and waterborne diseases. Since 2019 I have taught microbiology for pre-nursing students at Arapahoe Community College, Aurora Community College, and online at CCConline.

I am passionate about biology and microbiology and strive to relate the fundamental concepts to real-world examples from my experiences. I strive to promote a collaborative and productive relationship with my students to promote interest, engagement, and motivation to learn the subject material. I am excited to help you understand and navigate the basic science and how it impacts all of your lives. My goal is to see you succeed and sincerely enjoy helping students.

The key to learning science is you must understand the concepts, how they are applied, and why they do have a significant impact on everyone. I have extensive experience explaining the material in an easy-to-understand interactive approach. I am absolutely passionate about the content and truly believe it is relevant not only to your future career but also has an impact on everyon" less...
