I graduated from the University of Utah in 2006 with a BS in Biology. I then joined Teach For America (the best organization to work for), a non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating educational inequity especially in impoverished, under-performing areas in that USA. I taught HS biology for 2 years in Henderson, NC. I miss my students dearly.
I recently finished my 2 year Master's degree in Sustainability at Arizona State University in the Fall of 2008. I currently live in San Francisco.
