I’ve always loved numbers and puzzles, which sparked my love for math and science and led me to graduate from the University of Notre Dame with a B.S. in chemical and biomolecular engineering. After undertaking research positions in the biomolecular field, I returned to tutoring, which I had begun in high school.
I still look back on the teachers that inspired me in STEM, and I love to give back by helping the next generation of students. I am especially passionate about helping make STEM accessible to women, people of color, LGBTQ+ students, and students with learning differences. I understand that the best improvements to any field come from a diversity of perspectives and lowering barriers to STEM helps our collective future.
The intersection between chemistry and biology is what I have dedicated my life to researching, studying, and teaching, and I am always delighted to share my passion for these subjects! I enjoy meeting students where they are and helping kindle passion in the subjects they are studying. I am also adept at helping students reach their future college and career goals by building a solid learning foundation, and strategizing study schedules, and developing test-taking strategies.
Outside of work, I practice visual art and music composition (I play piano and guitar), I love staying active by hiking, and I can talk about indie music and horror films for hours.
