If it has DNA, I am into it, more specifically, human genetics and its impact on cancer. I also love to learn more about how cells communicate and interact, like through neural networks.
STEM equality. Top interests include my family- taking care and keeping up with my daughters- the animal experts and animal rescuers- earthworms have no fear! I also love to cook, art in all forms, tennis, and scrapbooking (something to do with all the family pictures I acquire!).
On another note, I am very passionate about increasing the quality of science instruction in early childhood education. If you are planning on becoming a science teacher- come and chat with me!
