Her passion lies in biology, specifically paleontology, and that enthusiasm is contagious to those in attendance. She has talks on dinosaurs and ancient animals (including those found in Florida), Florida ecosystems, evolution, human environmental impacts, science in general for primary and secondary students, and classic science fiction.
