I like biking, skiing, soccer, trail running and yoga.
I am also passionate about promoting diversity in science - particularly women in STEM fields - and science outreach and education.
Here are some links along those lines:
- Red Ants Pants is a Montana company that makes work pants fit for women. Check 'em out!
- Girls on Ice is a wilderness science education program for high school girls.
- Lone Peak rock glacier was once featured on Helena High School teacher Rod Benson's website.
- Native American Research Laboratory and American Indian Research Opportunities offices both do great work in Montana.
- Why Are There So Few Women in Science is a thought-provoking article published in the New York Times in October, 2013.
