About Dr. Garneau
From an early age I loved both science and entertaining. I did stand up comedy in my 4th grade talent show, and played the lead Andrew Sister in a high school production about the 1940s. And yet, I also learned the fungi (fun-guy) joke in 6th grade, won my share of science fairs, and by my sophomore year, had declared to my folks that I was going to be a geneticist. See, dreams do come true! I’m now doing what I love most, talking science and inspiration, and making people laugh full time.
Following high school, I loved my time on the banks of the old Raritan, completing my BA in Genetics at Rutgers College. I then took off a gap year to gain a sense of self, before going full force into my PhD in microbiology at Colorado State University. This led to a business internship with CSU Ventures, volunteering for the Colorado BioScience Association, and eventually a ten-year career as the curator and chair of the Health Sciences Department at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science.
And now, I’m honored to be recognized as one of the top 5 most influential young professionals in Colorado, a 2020 CiviCO Governors Fellow, and a serial entrepreneur. I live with my husband and daughter in Denver, and delight in immersing myself in nature when I’m not immersed in serving my clients.
