My name is Cindy Trussell. I'm a native of New Hampshire and have also lived in Miami, Florida, Chapel Hill, NC, Adelaide, Australia, and Peru. I am an ethologist by training having earned a B.S.(University of Miami) in marine sciences and biology, and a Ph.D. (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, 2004) in biology with a concentration in animal behavior. I have taught lecture courses at the college level for several years and online courses since 2007.

My husband and I live in the Monashka Bay area of the Kodiak road system with our dog, Tupelo and our cat, Maynard. My hobbies include bird watching, hiking, quilting, kayaking and jigsaw puzzles. I hope you enjoy any courses that you take with me.
