Amanda Colburn is excited to join the Fusion team this year! Born and raised in Baltimore, MD, she has lived in the DC Metro Area since her undergraduate studies in Biology at American University. She went on to earn her Masters in Education from Notre Dame of Maryland University and has been passionate about teaching science ever since! In 2014, she returned to academics and is currently a Doctoral Candidate in Science Education Research at George Mason University.
When she is not teaching, reading, or writing, Amanda enjoys hiking and camping, cooking her Grandmom’s old Italian recipes, and traveling with her husband.
