Biography 

Born and raised in Scotland. Earned a Bachelors of Science in Chemistry for the University of Glasgow. I then moved to Arizona to attend ASU where I completed my Masters in Chemistry studying chemical education. Then continued at ASU to earn my PhD in Chemistry studying Bioinorganic systems.

I have many interests, which include working out, reading, movies, crafts and spending time with my family and pets.
