How did you connect with Beyond Benign?
I used some of the labs developed by beyond benign for my dissertation research on green chemistry.

What first drew you into teaching and science education?
I first went to college to be a chemist, but found that I enjoyed teaching chemistry more than bench chemistry because of the social element.

What excited you most about teaching green chemistry?
Green Chemistry reinforces the important idea that science is not a subject but a way of thinking about phenomena. The design aspect inherent in the 12 Principles of Green Chemistry facilitates engagement with chemistry concepts beyond the classroom.
