Hello:  I was born and raised in Europe and came to the United States to attend graduate school. My first graduate degree is in Pathobiology (University of Washington) and my thesis was assessing the efficacy of Albendazole in the treatment of Echinococcus multilocularis. I continued my studies and pursued a doctoral degree in Comparative and Experimental Medicine at the University of Tennessee. I studied BVD (Bovine virus diarrhea virus) and spent long hours in the laboratory with molecular biology, cloning and sequencing a nonstructural viral protein. I shall never forget seeing the protein in the gel! Since then I have been involved in academic teaching, administration and research - five years at the University of Guam, and then teaching part-time for various private and public schools - all undergraduate teaching, and mostly online teaching. I have also developed and updated unergraduate life science courses for Blackboard and WebCT. The last year I began teaching full time, and all online for Northern Virginia Community college. At present I live in northern California. We are a military family (just retired) and moved often (worldwide), and this, most of all, precluded consistent academic employment and a research career. I truly enjoyed living in different countries, and am so fortunate to have gotten involved in online education, and am now very eager to begin scholarly work in SoTL, to actually study pedagogy, and improve student experience in science classes.
