I hold a Ph.D. in Neurobiology from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) where I studied the molecular pathogenesis of Alexander disease pursuant to a grant from the NIH. I also hold a B.A. in Biological Sciences from the University of Mississippi where I conducted environmental research for an EPA project. Currently, I am pursuing a J.D. as a part-time law student at Catholic University where my legal interests consist of intellectual property/patent law and public policy.

In the past, I have provided tutoring in both commercial and private contexts to individuals ranging from middle school students to adults applying to medical and pharmacy school. I specialize in providing content that is oriented towards students who are interested in careers in medicine, biomedical research, and biotechnology. The subjects I cover are chemistry, biology, and biochemistry. I am particularly fond of biochemistry, and I enjoy teaching organic chemistry reactions that are related to processes of medical importance.

The foundational principle of my teaching philosophy is customization, and I work hard to tailor my sessions to the specific needs of the student. I strongly believe students learn best by having material presented to them from different angles and in different formats.

In my free time I enjoy reading, fishing, and watching college football. I have also recently ventured into the Maker movement, but so far I’m not skilled enough to make much of interest! When asked, I still perform mass spectrometry-based proteomics experiments for collaborators in academia.
