EducationPhD student at UVA, Ecology & Evolutionary Biology
Bachelor's degree (biology): Gustavus Adolphus College '10
ExperienceMy intended career is to teach college courses as a professor in the field of biology. I love to help others understand difficult concepts and do my best to ensure students are able to learn to study independently, instead of having to continually rely on a tutor.
Throughout my undergraduate career I focused extensively on math and science, and I have tutored since high school, where I started with Algebra/Geometry. I primarily tutored biology in college, and worked as private tutor for national company after graduating, which focused on ACT test prep. Currently, as part of my graduate career, I instruct biology lab sections at UVA.
In addition to my focus on math and science, I have studied French for seven years.
HobbiesAside from my studies, I'm a strong fitness and nutrition enthusiast. In my spare time I'm studying to be a personal trainer, and intend to be certified by this Summer. I find coaching others on health-related goals to be equally as rewarding as academic achievements - and as we know, a strong body makes the mind strong. I love everything about food, both cooking and eating.
