Q: Tell us a little about who you are… A: Who knew this would be such a hard question to answer. I guess I can start by saying I’m one of the longest lasting employees with the company and sister-in-law to Mr. Spangler. I started doing part time projects when I was 14 years old when Steve and Renee first started the company. I’d mail out fliers to elementary schools about Steve’s programs.

We’ve been inseparable ever since!

Steve gives the Sacramento anchors several attention-grabbing science lessons -
