I love science and teaching! I earned my Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry from the University of Michigan in 2005. Immediately following graduate school, I worked in for a pharmaceutical company as a Research Scientist in medicinal chemistry, but it wasn't long before I realized that my true passion was in academia, teaching and working with students.
After completion of an NIH postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Illinois, I continued my work in drug discovery research developing new "targeted" cancer therapies at the University of Colorado in Denver where I served as Assistant Professor of Chemistry from 2011-2015.
For the last four years, I have been teaching part-time. I returned to Colorado recently from a one year Visiting Lecturer position at the University of Illinois and I am currently teaching at Colorado Mountain College in Breckenridge.
When tutoring and teaching, I focus on ideas and concepts. I emphasize logic and critical thinking and discourage memorization. Once a solid foundation of the concept is set, we explore more details of the topic and strategies for effectively solving problems by working specific problems and bridging concepts.
