She received her BS in Biochemistry at The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC. She is an Associate Adjunct Professor at the University of Maryland University College in Adelphi, MD since 2012. In her own words: “I have had an interest in science and nature from the time I was little. My favorite questions were “why” and “what is that”. It was not surprising that I went to school to pursue a degree in science. CUA was my first foray into a Catholic school, and I loved that it was a place where the faith was used to enlighten and inspire our studies. It was there that I came to appreciate the harmony that can be found between what we know by faith and what we know by reason. Science and religion are not at odds with one another! My work in graduate school with microorganisms continued to have me marvel at creation. The dedication in my doctoral thesis reads “To the good God, who saw fit to give humankind both heart and mind to know Him and His creation, may this work be pleasing unto You”, and it the perfect summary for how I approach science education. It is my desire to help my students not just learn chemistry but to appreciate how scientific knowledge can draw us closer to our Lord.”

She has over 11 years of experience in the classroom and is passionate about Catholic Education, which animates everything she does (just ask her husband and children). In her own words, “Teaching at Seton is a gift! By being a part of Seton School, I have fulfilled a dream of teaching at a school where students and faculty integrate their spiritual life with their daily life. It’s a place where an encounter with the beauty of faith is cultivated. Through the lens of faith, we can see the laws of nature with awe and wonder, and we have an answer from where the beauty of nature comes from. God made the beautiful world around us. “In the beginning, He created,” are the first five words in Genesis. This creation is visibly portrayed and can be shared in the science and math classroom. Mathematics and science are about order in the world, and we study and discover truths and universal principles, by our engagement of the world, His creation. With the strong collaboration that occurs at Seton, our students are encouraged, equipped, and well educated in an atmosphere of love and support.”

God’s creation is not random but ordered, intricate, and always unfolding”. Vickie also holds a Master Catechist Certification from the Diocese of Arlington. She is blessed to be at Seton, a place where the Holy Spirit abounds.
