Liz shares her love of the natural world teaching Science and Math at Fusion San Mateo. Growing up in Virginia, Liz thought she lived in the south. After receiving her B.S. in Biology from the University of Virginia, she moved to Athens, Georgia and realized Virginia is not the south at all. In May, 2015 she finished her PhD in molecular genetics at the University of Georgia and immediately enrolled full-time in art school to study painting and drawing. Art and science are not so different after all, and Liz draws from both to teach the wonder and beauty of science (and math!) to her students. In her free time she loves to hike, camp, and soak up the great outdoors with her husband.
