I love the outdoors and all kinds of science! I am have always been drawn to marine biology and health, and especially the mechanisms behind how things work, including global systems. I have a passion for teaching and helping students advance their science education, at any level. My goal is to inspire students to go beyond the classroom and excel at truly understanding and applying the science that they learn in school, to their everyday life.
