She has been a long-time presenter at the annual AAUW STEM Conference for Eighth Grade Girls both in Redlands and in the Pass area, presents a program about math offerings at the University of Redlands to Summer Bridge students, and is the Math Placement Coordinator for First-Year Students and Transfers.
