Anita received a B.S in Earth Science and an M.S. in Geology from the University of Arkansas and a PhD in Geology from the University of South Florida. She has applied her engaging and inclusive approach to geology and earth science instruction at both two-year and four-year institutions and has published research in geoscience education and volcano geophysics. She is the Principle investigator (lead researcher) for the Library of Inclusive Field Technology, a.k.a the LIFT kit – a lending library of tech tools to enable students with limited mobility to participate in geology field work through the use of technology and collaborative teams, and the NSF funded GeoSPACE Accessible field program (link coming soon).

A passionate advocate for inclusion of underrepresented groups in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), Anita shares her research expertise and personal experiences as a geoscientist with a physical disability and a member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma as an invited panelist and speaker at national conferences and as a contributor to online resources such as the ADVANCEgeo website and EOS magazine.
