Auburn Women

I came to Auburn in 1985, and fell in love with learning. Though the sciences beckoned, it was Auburn’s journalism department that I finally called home. Some three decades later, I’m still mixing communication and science education at the U.S Space and Rocket Center, where as Director of Education, I am able to help educate and inspire children from around the world about space science, and the mission-critical role Alabama — and not a few Auburn men and women — played in one of the most important undertakings in human history. And at the Center, as we help the next generation look to the future of space exploration and discovery, what I learned about hard work and expression serves me well every day, and I frequently punctuate my message with a hearty “War Eagle!”
