I am originally from the Midwest, but I consider myself a Phoenician.
I genuinely love learning and being in the classroom—seriously, it's a passion of mine!
The classroom has always felt like a second home to me. It's where I can indulge my geeky side with topics like neuroscience, literature, and of course, biology. The thrill of unraveling the mysteries behind how things work and diving deep into subjects ignites my curiosity. As my fascination with learning grew, it naturally led me down a path I couldn't ignore—one that eventually took me to the doors of medical school.
Picture this: I'm knee-deep in the whirlwind of medical school, soaking up the ins and outs of the human body and the world of medicine. But as life would have it, unexpected health issues threw me a curve ball. I had to pause my med school dreams, but my passion for learning didn't skip a beat. Teaching became my lifeline—a source of strength and excitement, even during tough times.
This is my story: a mix of biology, education, and life's unexpected twists. It's about embracing challenges, bouncing back, and proving that passion is an unstoppable force. So here's to juggling the intricacies of biology, overcoming health hurdles, and striving to be the educator who brings science to life.
