Biography: Kathleen joined Episcopal in 1992 after working for George Washington University and the National Institutes of Health, where she conducted AIDS and cancer research. At Episcopal, she teaches Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, and Genetics, and coaches girls’ varsity tennis and JV field hockey. Kathleen serves as a "rover" administrator in the residential community. Kathleen says, “I want to engage young minds, captivate them, and make them love the subject. We are partners in the learning process, and I try to make science relevant to their lives so they see the value in what they are learning.”
Kathleen was awarded the 2007 Frontier Fellowship from the American Physiological Society, a yearlong fellowship to enhance teaching by inquiry. The fellowship includes a summer research job at Georgetown University. She has expanded on her work in and around marine biology research, currently working with a senior on data from the Smithsonian with current students. "I hope to keep this research connection with the scientist and my students, a real life connection, which is how I like to teach," she says.
Kathleen and her husband, Doug, live on campus and have three sons, Scott ’08, Quinn ’12, and Schillo Tshuma ’12.
