I received my Bachelors of Science in Chemistry from Dickinson College in Pennsylvania. After college I joined a Tri-Institutional Ph.D. program in Chemical Biology where I carried out my coursework at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY and the research portion of my degree was performed at The Rockefeller University in New York City. After completing my Ph.D. in the Spring of 2013 I then moved back to Massachusetts, which is where I grew up. While obtaining my degrees I have taught and mentored students in science from a variety of different age groups. These experiences have taught me how to tailor my teaching methods to a particular student. I chose to pursue a career in science because it is a subject I find interesting and exciting. I have spent the last 10 years advancing my understanding of Biology and Chemistry and I enjoy using this knowledge to help make science less confusing and more fun for others. In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my friends and family and spending time outdoors playing with my dog, going on runs and skiing.
