Teaching/Speaking

Teaching: I teach as an adjunct instructor in the Department of Human Physiology at the University of Oregon and the Nutrition department at Lane Community College. I’m comfortable teaching in small classrooms and in large lecture halls with several hundred students, as well as teaching online courses. As in my writing, my goal as a teacher is to bring science to life for my students. I want them to not only learn the material in the course, but to leave my classroom with a better understanding of how science works and how they can keep learning as it evolves.007

College courses taught: Biology, Medical Terminology, Nutrition, Family Food and Nutrition, Personal Nutrition, Sports Nutrition, Exercise as Medicine.

Speaking: I am available for public speaking engagements on topics related to parenting, children’s health, nutrition, and science and media literacy. For more information, send me a note through my Contact page.
