moved all the way from Grand Rapids, MI to serve at the Wise Wonders because she loves helping kids explore the wide world of science. She loves Wise Wonders because she believes it takes a certain level of order and chaos to appreciate how "stuff" works. Not only is she super passionate about science but she also loves acting, TedTalks and probably every Kevin Costner film ever made.
