Kelly Peach joined the science team at The Bay School in 2018. In graduate school she spent her time scuba diving for marine bacteria, with the goal of finding compounds produced inside the bacteria that could be used to treat infectious diseases. Despite how exciting research can be, Kelly’s passion lies in inspiring curiosity and enthusiasm in students while investigating how the world works through the lens of chemistry. Outside of the classroom, Kelly loves playing with her pug puppy (named Callahan), cooking extravagant meals, and constructing pop-up cards.
