I have always enjoyed educating others. As an informal science educator, I enjoy helping people discover and appreciate the intricacies and beauty of science and mathematics. Throughout college I worked as a math tutor helping students with courses calculus and above. Once in graduate school, I had my first teaching opportunity as a teaching assistant for Honors General Chemistry. I strove to utilize the lessons I learned as a math tutor during my first teaching assistant position at Cornell University. After finishing my PhD, I took a position as a science educator, which has allowed me to continue my love of translating science into everyday language with enthusiasm and accuracy.
