Watching films has always been a passion of mine. At a very young age I began to watch films with a creative eye, trying to figure out how the director shaped the visual story and used the camera to engage the viewer. As I got older, I began to write, direct and shoot short videos, realizing that I had the talent and determination to pursue a career in the movie industry.
I entered nursing because of the desire to give back to those in need of care and assistance in living a healthy life. I chose to obtain a college degree in nursing which pivoted me into a world of higher education with an emphasis on maternal-child nursing and the love of community-based nursing.

Ahhh...the warm weather has finally arrived and I couldn't be happier. The sun, the warmth, open windows, flowers, long days and outside activities all just put me in a better mood. Another one of my favorite things about summer is the abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables.
There's nothing better than sitting outside on a summer day to enjoy the sun and eat lunch. Imagine some greens topped with avocado, cucumbers and almonds. Follow that up with a fruit bowl overflowing with apples, blueberries, cherries, watermelon, peaches, blackberries, raspberries, cantaloupe, pears and plums.
Now imagine a pesky honeybee buzzing around and interrupting your peaceful meal. I'm guessing your first instinct is to swat around at it or maybe even trying to squash it. Time out. Before you curse your pesky new friend, take a moment and imagine something else.
Without that honeybee's existence, you would literally be eating just a bowl of greens. That's it. Just greens. Without bees and pollination, all those other crops are at risk of disappearing. All of a sudden, lunch got a whole lot less tasty. Who wants just a bowl of greens? (Lettuce is the only thing I've seen my dog ever spit out).
Soon after joining the faculty at MSU, I told a potential graduate student who was interested in studying bees that she needed to find a different lab, because "we don't work with bees". This proves you should never say never because during the past decade a major portion of my research program has focused on the fascinating world of bees and crop pollination.
During Spring Break 2014, I joined 15 other MSU students on a living and learning experience of our own at the Friday Harbor Laboratories.
