Mary Anne is a former Associate Professor of Biology & Environmental Science at Georgetown College in Kentucky, teaching about climate change, energy conservation, and renewable energy. Now retired, she continues working on these issues as a community volunteer, including a local leadership role in NASA’s Earth to Sky program, a growing partnership among NASA, the National Park Service (NPS) and the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), which work together, enabling educators and science communicators access to and use of relevant science, data, and educational products in their work.

Mary Anne earned a B.A in Mathematical and Computer Sciences from Colgate University, an M.S. in Computer Science from Rutgers University and her Ph. D. in Environmental Science from Rutgers University. Her research has included ecotoxicology with an emphasis on aquatic and wetlands habitats, and the effects of pollutants on individual organisms, populations and communities, including endocrine disruption. Mary Anne and her husband and SEEDS board member, Jack Barnett, live in a net-zero home in northeastern PA. Mary Anne previously served on the Board of SEEDS during a sabbatical from Georgetown. She is also one of our champion fund-raisers. SEEDS is very lucky to have her knowledge and passion enhancing our Advisory Committee and the greater community.
