I received my Bachelor of Science in Environmental Sciences with a minor in Anthropology from the University of Notre Dame. After graduation, I entered a M.S. graduate program in Biology at Arizona State University. When I'm not teaching biology to undergraduate majors at ASU, I research topics in aquatic ecology. Understanding the connectedness and patterns of environmental processes in aquatic ecosystems drives my passion to become an ecologist!

My goal is to help students view learning as a positive experience! When students learn with me, they usually find that it is a very relaxed, hands-on, and visual process. I excel at tutoring biological subjects, but I also really enjoy helping students improve their writing and standardized testing skills. Every student is different, and so I firmly believe that studying and learning habits should be tailored to each person. I make it a goal to help students discover how they learn best! I can also help students with organization and time management techniques along the way.

When I'm not being a student, teacher, or researcher, I am usually making art or exploring the outdoors in sunny Arizona!
