I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Sciences with a minor in Irish Language and Literature from the University of Notre Dame. Following graduation, I taught high school science and religion courses in Ogden, Utah. During this time I earned my Master of the Arts in Teaching degree from the University of Portland which licensed me to teach at the secondary level. I now study Type I Diabetes in a research laboratory in Seattle, Washington, and I plan to use this experience to pursue a Ph.D. in cognitive neuroscience (the study of how we form and access memories). My interest in neuroscience fuels my philosophy of education. I think all students have a profound capacity to learn and my role as an educator is to help the student unlock their potential. In my time as a teacher and even during my own education, I had the opportunity to work with many peers and students to help them reach their goals. Most of my experience is in math and science tutoring, which I enjoy tremendously. There is nothing quite like reaching the point where a new understanding opens up a new way of looking at the world, and I find these moments in math and science. In my free time I enjoy reading or spending time outdoors and if possible, both at the same time. I also can be found cheering loudly for a variety of sports teams; my favorite being my own Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Finally, I love my Irish heritage, and I happily celebrate all things Irish, from the beautiful language, to the unique sports, to the masterful poetry, to my mother’s homemade Irish pastie.
