I graduated from La Sierra University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. I then went on to teach Biology and Anatomy & Physiology at La Sierra Academy. I am currently a PhD candidate studying Marine Biology at Loma Linda University and have spent a great deal of my academic career studying cellular molecular biology. I have a real passion for teaching. I know what it's like to be a student and be confused, stuck, frustrated, and at times, all of the above. I try to teach concepts that may seem complex by using analogies students can relate to. Personally, nothing beats seeing a student fully understand a concept they once thought too complex. When applicable, I show students how to approach and evaluate problems, helping them become independent critical thinkers. My hobbies include music, sports (primarily basketball), and reading.
