Founder and Principal Consultant
I earned my Ph.D. in entomology working with bed bugs and insecticide resistance. However, my direct experience expands across more area including: mosquitoes, surface disinfection, fumigation, and urban pest management.
I have worked in the consumer packaged goods and professional products industries developing products and communication strategies for different customer needs ranging from insect control to cleaning and disinfection.
My research has been published in peer-reviewed and trade journals, and research I co-authored has been featured by National Geographic News. A complete list can be found in the Science Communication section on this website or by clicking here.
I am an award winning communicator that has spoken all over the world at scientific conferences, corporate meetings, sales presentations, committee meetings, in-person and virtual trainings, and more.
