She has taught courses in environmental science (at Cape Cod Community College) in addition to many UCONN courses, including freshman biology, biology of the brain, and comparative physiology in addition to her career-long experience teaching anatomy and physiology. She is a National Academy of Sciences / Howard Hughes Medical Institute Summer Institutes on Scientific Teaching Fellow (2014) and Mentor (2016 – 2018) and is a recipient of the University of Connecticut Institute for Teaching and Learning Faculty Scholar Award.
