My goal is to nurture tomorrow’s scientists by serving as a guide who encourages the natural curiosity of human form and function. In my classroom, students are encouraged to be part of a positive and encouraging community of learning. Our anatomy and physiology classroom utilizes an engaging variety of instructional methods to ensure that every learner has the opportunity to excel. Each of my students is a unique and important member of our classroom who will feel safe while diving into new academic challenges that will continue their growth as future scientists.
I grew up in Los Angeles, California and moved to Arizona in 2007. I attended Scripps College, an all-women’s college in Claremont, California where I majored in Biology. During my Master’s degree at UCLA, I conducted field research on baby desert tortoises. The data I collected has been included in a study that was published in 2015 in the peer-reviewed scientific journal, Herpetological Conservation and Biology. I have enjoyed teaching science to middle school students for eight years, but I am looking forward to teaching high school Anatomy and Physiology! In my free time, I like to play board games and spend time with my two daughters.
