I am currently a medical student pursuing a Doctor of Osteopathy (DO) degree at University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine. I just finished my third year and am about to embark on a teaching fellowship at UNE where I will be directly teaching the first and second year medical students in anatomy and clinical skills. I've been teaching most of my life, however. I started teaching children of all ages how to swim when I was 12, and have been doing so since. I also have been supporting and helping my classmates succeed throughout my academic career. In particular, I tutor the sciences in all levels, particularly biology, anatomy, and physiology. I can also help prepare for standardized exams such as the SAT (both math and verbal), MCAT, and board examinations for medical school.
Education, I believe, is the stepping stone to an amazing career and a fulfilling life and I hope to inspire all of my students to continue their pursuit of knowledge, regardless of grade level. The process of learning is fun, but also the multitude of things out there to learn are incredible. I love looking at things like bridges and airplanes and thinking about the brilliant minds who came up with a way to cross expansive rivers and oceans. I also am constantly amazed by the human body and what it accomplishes every day. My passion is sharing this excitement about learning and inspiring others to find the same joy.
My teaching process involves getting to know my students' passions and interests so we can illustrate tough concepts and skills through that lens. I also love to come up with funny memory devices so that things are never forgotten! Overall, I love and am enthusiastic about teaching and look forward to helping you succeed!

I love to read books of all types, particularly fiction. Bookstores and coffee shops are my favorite places to visit. Exploring is one of my favorite activities, whether it's in a new city, town, or country. I always want to be at the beach.
