    Heli Venkov

    Welcome to science!

    I graduated with a Biology and Chemistry degree from Western Washington University in 2008.  I spent about 9 years working with various research groups at the VA Puget Sound Healthcare System.  My work included animal research and the effects of PTSD, clinical research looking at Parkinson's disease and cognition, along with studying various biomarkers.  I've spent the last 3 years working in epidemiology looking at health trends for Veterans.  My most recent work has been with Vietnam Veterans.  I recently earned a master in teaching degree in science education.  I’m so thrilled to be teaching science here at Cascade High School.  I look forward to getting to know you throughout this new school year.
