  • Education: B.S. in Biochemistry, and B.A. in Secondary Education, Biology. Currently working on an M.S. in Software Engineering.
  • Interests: I am fascinated by science and history. My taste in podcasts might shed some light into my interests; I love Radiolab, Stuff You Missed in History Class, and Freakonomics. I also love the writing of Sam Kean and Mary Roach.
  • Skills: I have worked extensively with personalized learning. My background in science and technology also gives me a deep understanding of the topic, and an interesting perspective on current events.
  • Associations: Past member of the National Association of Biology Teachers (NABT), the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), and the Virginia Association of Science Teachers (VAST).
  • Issues I care about: One of the biggest challenges our generation will face relates to access to clean drinking water. Finding inexpensive, practical ways to provide drinking water is a challenge I encourage my students to think about.

I absolutely love science, and get excited to learn about the fascinating and quirky ways our universe works. I like to relate content to students' lives - the infamous "Is it blue/black or white/gold?" dress got tied into lessons about light and color, and how our brains work. My hope is that, by sharing my genuine excitement about the content, students will get excited to learn about science too!
