I am a current veterinary student and lifelong lover of science, literature and learning. My background is primarily in biology and the life sciences, and in addition to my veterinary program, I also work as part of a research team in comparative oncology that develops treatments for cancer that benefit both humans and animals. I am passionate about increasing public understanding of science, and am happy to work with students of any level of science education.
I also believe strongly that written and verbal communication skills are essential to success in any academic path, and want to help students refine these skills so that they can bring their thoughts and ideas into the world with clarity and power!
In my spare time, I enjoy being outdoors hiking, biking, and nordic skiing. I also enjoy rock climbing, horseback riding, yoga, and hanging out with my cat.
