Portrait of Page Spiess

Page C. Spiess received a BS in Biochemistry (ACS certified) from Eckerd College, and a Master of Science and Ph.D. in pharmacology and toxicology from the University of California, Davis. Spiess joined the Departments of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Norwich University in 2017 and has since taught many chemistry and biochemistry courses. Spiess has developed multiple new courses for NU including Chemistry of Weapons of Mass Destruction, and worked with CGCS to develop online offerings of CH101/CH102 courses for the RN to BSN program.

Spiess was named an inaugural Fellow of the NU Institute for Innovation in Teaching and Learning in 2021. She serves as campus Academic Integrity Officer, Summer School Coordinator, and Assistant Dean of Learning Fundamentals. Her other service work includes advising NU student clubs, promoting STEM education and mentoring in underrepresented groups in Vermont, and engagement in justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives within the community.

In 2021, Spiess earned a ATHENA Young Professional Leadership Award® from the Central Vermont Chamber of Commerce. IN 2022, she joined fellow chemistry professor Dr. Sarah Gallant and Vice President of Diversity, Equitty and Inclusion Dr. Julia Bernard as facilitators on the Inclusive STEM Teaching Project.

Spiess’s research spans the realms of human disease and environmental toxicology. Previous research focused on the use of redox proteomics to detect post-translational modifications and enzyme activity disruption in the study of lung diseases and cancer initiation. More recently, Spiess has worked with Norwich University students on detecting and characterizing toxic levels of road deicing solutions and pharmaceutical effects on local aquatic environments using novel cell models and enzyme activity techniques. She enjoys gardening and weaving in her spare time.
