Teresa earned her microbiology degrees from Brigham Young University, the BS focusing on general microbiology and her masters on verifying a rapid herpes simplex test. As far as jobs, she has worked in quality control for consumer products and bottled water, clinical viral testing, testing dental infection control products, and training new employees in microbiological techniques.
As far as hobbies, Teresa enjoys hiking, stalking various wildlife and plants with her camera (the plants are much easier), collecting aluminum cans, and writing fiction and nonfiction.
Teresa has enjoyed teaching, especially when she can make the difficult topics of biology, biochemistry, and microbiology interesting. “If you can attach information to a good story, the students will remember it better. That, and repetition, repetition, repetition.”
