Professional. For over 25 years, I enjoyed a fascinating career writing, editing and translating scientific research for children and adults through multiple media: Books, journals, films, interactive websites, art gallery installations, and museum exhibits. As a communication, education and outreach professional at several science and engineering institutions (California Institute of Technology, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the University of Southern California, and the University of Michigan), I focused primarily on topics related to engineering, Earth science, and biology. I retired at 59, and now do art full time.

Personal. I like variety! I am a licensed pilot, runner and hiker, clothing designer and maker, doll maker and abstract painter. I hung up my “wings” about six years ago – Michigan weather, time constraints and costs put flying just out of reach for me. Twenty-five years ago, I met and later married Elliott Andrews, an MIT and Amherst alumnus, former history teacher, motorcycle and classic car builder and racer, and long distance runner. He’s now retired and we live in the country outside Ann Arbor, Michigan. One of our three daughters, Ariel, lives nearby with her new husband and our new grandson, Nolan.

1971, Big Sandy. Mark Robinson took this picture of me. We were both working at the press at the time.
