I advise and I know things.  
Anthropologists dig me. 
Geologists think I rock

... I often think I'm far more hilarious than I am.  

I am the advisor for STEM, meaning that I work with any student who is interested in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, or pre-health (doctors, dentists, pharmacists, and veterinarians). We work together to outline a plan for your time at Estrella Mountain Community College; this includes mapping out classes, seeking out volunteer and/or internship opportunities - the fun stuff! - and working with universities to maximize transfer credits.

I also teach English on this campus and enjoy every minute watching my students fall in love with the writing process (or at least learn to not hate it quite so much).  My courses this semester are focused on the hero's journey and the idea of the monomyth in pop culture.  It's fun because I nerd out about the Hobbit and superheroes a lot.

Additionally, I am the co-advisor for the STEM Club which aims to connect STEM students to others in their field, both on campus and in the community.  We want to increase awareness of the importance of STEM education and establish partnerships with STEM businesses, industries, and universities to provide more varied opportunities for students.

I speak fluent nerd and movie quotes and you shouldn’t be surprised to find me around campus with brightly colored hair, a superhero t-shirt or accessory, and no less than four visible film or literature-based tattoos. Someday I plan to take over the world; come make friends with me now and I'll make sure you get a good job when that happens!
