Back in 7th grade, I walked into my science class, greeted by Ms. Smith’s excited smile. 


“Today, we’re going to do a science experiment with fire!” She told us. That’s how I got hooked on science. Now, I'm dedicated to spreading that excitement to others.


I went to college and earned a PhD in Science Education at Illinois Institute of Technology. From Loyola University Chicago, I earned an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction and a B.S.Ed. in Elementary Education.


After years of experience as a professor, teacher, education consultant, and science education researcher, I created Kezly Education LLC. At Kezly, we help children, teens, and schools learn science, technology, engineering, math, and literacy through fun and interactive experiences.

Kezly believes in the power of education.
Together, let's build a plan for success.
