Why do you teach?

I have always loved learning about science and how the human body works! Originally, I was planning to become a scientist but when I was in graduate school, I had to teach an undergraduate biochemistry lab and that was where I really found out how much I enjoyed teaching. I particularly enjoyed breaking down seemingly complicated concepts into simpler ideas so that students could fully understand what was going on. I really want to empower my students with knowledge so that they can make healthier choices and show them that learning science can be fun!

Hobbies and Interests

In my spare time, I love to travel, go hiking, watch movies and spend time with my family and friends.
