Sharing my experience as a soil scientist, educator, writer, and woman in science is one of the great joys of my career. I have over a decade of public speaking experience from my early days working at Blue Camp and leading tours at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo to more recent appearances at scientific conferences, in undergraduate and graduate classrooms, at local club events, and during K-12 school visits.
I am available to speak at workshops, conferences, school visits, local events, field visits, and more. I specialize in both free-form ignite style speeches and long-form interactive lectures.
