When I left my career as a research chemist at DuPont to raise children, I did not know if I would ever work professionally again. I became Catholic and entered the distance learning program at Holy Apostles College & Seminary because 1) I wanted to know more about the Catholic faith, 2) I needed to be home with babies and toddlers and teens, and 3) I desired something to save me from mental mushiness. The online environment was perfect! The decision to pursue an online MA in Dogmatic Theology turned my years as a homemaker into a time of preparation for the future as well. I completed that degree in 2014 and started teaching online. I work full-time now that the kids are getting older, but completely from home. I find myself weaving through days where I literally wash dishes and do laundry one minute, log into a course the next to estimate enthalpy changes in reactions, solve conservation of angular momentum problems, or help seminarians read scientific literature, and spend all day in surrounded by my kids. I am not sure where all of this is going, but I love teaching and am thankful to Catholic institutions for allowing me these opportunities. Here is a list of courses I teach.
