I graduated from my high school with a 4.025 GPA and went on to pursue a Bachelor Science from Michigan State University. While at MSU, I was a Teaching Assistant for a Chemistry laboratory course and taught the first Honors section of the course. I graduated from the Honors College and the Lyman Briggs Residential College of Science at MSU in 2014. I then moved to Indianapolis in 2015 to pursue a Master of Science in Human Biology, with a strong focus on Forensic Anthropology. While at UIndy, I had many teaching opportunities within my department. I began as a tutor with the Anatomy department, progressed to a Teaching Assistant for Anatomy courses, and finally became an Adjunct Instructor, teaching 3 semesters of Human Anatomy. I currently work as a Research Analyst with IU School of Medicine, where I conduct research concerning chemotherapy-induced toxicities related to breast cancer treatment.
I have a strong passion for science, but consider myself very well-rounded in my skills and interests. My areas of expertise include biology and chemistry, but more specifically anatomy, genetics, biochemistry, forensic science, and math. Other than science, I also greatly enjoy literature, Spanish, and music.
Too long, didn't read? My philosophy is to value all learning, both inside and outside the classroom. I truly believe that every opportunity to learn is an opportunity to be seized. I love to share my knowledge, have open discussions, and learn as much as I can from my students.
