I have always loved to learn, there are so many fascinating things in the this world to explore! I enjoy teaching, especially in a one on one setting and I love to see the joy of learning in my students. I grew up in outside of Portland, OR. I received my my Bachelor degrees, in Biology, Biochemistry and Neuewent on to earn my PhD in Cell and Molecular Biology at the University of Hawaii in 2009. I then moved out to Denver to do my postdoctoral work at National Jewish Health. Since completing that work I have taken a sabbatical from research and have been competitively racing stand up paddleboards.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I like to guide students through new problems and concepts by having them go through what relevant information they already know and add to it in small steps. If they have a solid understanding of the basics, many concepts are just small logical steps forward. Breaking it down in this way allows a back and forth between teacher and student that encourages the student to engage in the learning process.
