Kathy is an Associate Professor of Medical Laboratory Science at Illinois State University. Medical Lab Scientists perform medical testing in hospital labs and blood banks, carry out research in government labs and pharmaceutical companies, and work in industry and crime labs. After working in hospital labs and obtaining a Master’s in Biology, she returned to her ISU Alma Mater to teach MLS students.
She is now working toward a Doctorate in Education. Her areas of interest are quite broad, but her area of current research is the use of virtual and augmented realities in education. She is interested in how and why teachers would use alternate reality tools with their students, and the effect these tools have on student learning.
