In high school I was selected to attend the very first New England Young Writers Conference at the Bread Loaf Campus of Middlebury College, Vermont. The conference focused on creative writing, and we were asked to bring a costume to represent what we wanted to be when we grew up. I dressed as a “mad scientist.” I am pleased that after years of formal education I am able to continue my science education through taking on new challenges related to being mad about science. I am thrilled to be working with the North Central Climate Science Center (NC CSC) as a half-time program management assistant. My work experiences in the Department of Interior over the past 20 years provide me with a broad perspective on the interactions between science and natural resources management as well as between scientists, managers, students and others. I look forward to supporting the NC CSC mission “to provide scientific information, tools, and techniques to anticipate, monitor, and adapt to climate change” by being an advocate of science. To me, this means promoting and facilitating research and a research process that includes communication of results to other scientists and stakeholders - cooperators, managers, policy makers, students, and the public.
