Why you like working at EEC:
I am passionate about children and education. Having the opportunity to impact the way people and children think about and perceive science is exciting. Having the opportunity to take the Edgerton Explorit Center to new level of greatness is amazing.
Hobbies and Interests:
Spending time with my husband, Dan, my son, Jacob, and two dogs, Rylie and Josey. Anything competitive. I have been an athlete and coached on the high school and college level for 20 years. I am competitive to a fault and do not like to lose at anything I do.
Graduated from Logan View Jr/Sr High School in Hooper, NE.
Leonardo Da Vinci. I love his fascination with science and his in-depth study of human anatomy.
Favorite Weird Science thing:
The aurora borealis. It is like a form of art. All of the magnetic and electrical forces react with one another in constantly shifting combinations. These shifts and flows can be seen as the auroras “dance,” moving along with the atmospheric currents.
