Ms. Bemis has been a member of the CCSF faculty for the past twelve years.

Ms. Bemis states that "learning occurs when questions are asked. The beauty of teaching non-credit courses is the ability to tailor the content to what the participants want to learn. Health and nutrition information in the media can often be confusing so my role is clarify and simplify. I use the participants' questions to gauge their understanding and determine topics to cover."

In her leisure time, she enjoys tap dancing.
