Comparative Pathology, School of Veterinary Medicine
University of California,
Vet., (Veterinary Medicine),
School of Veterinary Medicine, University
of Berne, Switzerland. 1985
at Las Positas College since 1997
started out as a veterinarian in Switzerland and came to California in 1986 (no,
not for professional reasons!). After going back to school at UC Davis, I received
my Ph.D. in the graduate group of Comparative Pathology. My research area was
Molecular Medical Microbiology specifically I was working with Borrelia burgdorferi,
the bacterium that causes Lyme disease. After my Ph.D., I worked in research at
the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory for a few years.
During that time
I started to teach part time at Las Positas College and soon discovered that I
really liked teaching a lot more than research. So, here I am today, a full-time
instructor for Microbiology and Physiology. Sometimes I also teach Anatomy and
I live in Danville with my husband, my daughter Maia (we adopted her from China in 2000), one dog named Paco del Taco, one hamster, two rats, and six birds.
In the summer I like to go camping and hiking in the woods. Coming from Switzerland, I also like to ski and snowshoe.
