Ph.D. Organic Chemistry, University of Vermont;
B.S. Chemistry, The College of New Jersey
I decided to study chemistry when I was in 8th grade! My science teacher assigned a project to make a presentation on one of the elements on the periodic table. I've loved chemistry ever since!
For as long as I can remember, I've always wanted to be a teacher. When I became a graduate teaching assistant, it really solidified for me that I wanted to teach. There's something about interacting with students and passing along knowledge to them that is inspiring to me. I thoroughly enjoy seeing students absorb chemistry concepts and help other students through topics they may be struggling with.
Outside of chemistry and teaching, I am an avid crocheter. I love to make hats, blankets, and stuffed animals! I'm also a huge Grey's Anatomy and Hamilton fan!
What I Love about Emmanuel
I've love how welcoming and kind everyone is at Emmanuel. The people here are willing to go out of their way to help you. Additionally, my students are very thoughtful and intelligent individuals. They challenge me to take on new perspectives and ways of thinking!
