I received my BA from Augustana University with a major in Biology and a minor in Psychology. I grew up thinking that I wanted to become a Physician Assistant, but learned through being a Teaching Assistant during undergrad that I loved teaching. After graduating with my BA degree, I attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham to get my Masters in Anatomical Sciences and a CIRTL Associate certificate so that I could teach at an upper level. I have multiple semesters-worth of experience as a Teaching Assistant for Biology and Anatomy, both throughout my undergraduate and graduate degrees. My favorite subject is Anatomy, but I enjoy teaching other Biology subjects as well! I believe that all students are capable of learning, and it is my responsibility to help them find the ways they learn best and most enjoy. Outside of teaching, I like being outside doing activities that include hiking, disc golf, sand volleyball, and golf, as well as painting, and enjoying a good TV show or movie with friends.
