I am originally from Lansdale, Pennsylvania where I attended North Penn High School. When I was fifteen, I attended St. Jean Private College in Tonneins, France as an exchange student for the entire year. My host father in France was a medical doctor and I developed an interested in medicine, which led me to earning a Master of Science degree in Developmental Biology. I have a strong passion for education and have taught High School Chemistry, Biology and Math. I also love our planet Earth and education so that led to earning my PhD in environmental science. My current job at NASA allows me to combine all my passions: helping our planet and still educating our future scientists and engineers about Earth. I feel that I am very lucky to do what I do daily!

During the Community Trees Challenge, GLOBE and GLOBE Observer are asking citizen scientists to observe, learn, engage, and create as they track their progress on the Community Trees Challenge Activity Tracker. You can choose as many or as few of the activities as you like to participate. Work together as a family, as a group of friends, or independently – it is up to you. To get more information download the 2021 Community Trees Challenge above and stay tuned for Brian's Science Talks on the Tree Challenge on May 22nd.
