Private tutor in Denver, CO
I have my B.S. in Biology (2011) and M.S. in Microbiology (2013) from Texas Christian University. During my Master's, I researched under Dr. Shauna McGillivray investigating the role of chromosomal virulence factors in the pathogenesis of Bacillus anthracis, the causative agent of the deadly disease Anthrax, which resulted in a first-author publication in the journal Infection and Immunity. I am currently in my third year of my Ph.D. research in Immunology at the University of Colorado at Denver, Anschutz Medical Campus. My primary thesis research is elucidating the role of the micorbiome on the development, progression and sustainment of autoimmune diseases. This project has given me the ability to perfectly merge my past experience in microbiology with my love and passion for the human immune system. I will send a copy of my C.V. upon request.
I have experience tutoring at the undergraduate level in biology, microbiology and immunology. During my master's, I taught collegiate freshman biology for two years. I have taken courses ranging from evolutionary biology, botany, cell and molecular biology, to immunology and microbiology. I have a 3.6 undergraduate GPA, a 3.9 M.S. GPA and a 3.75 (IP) Ph.D. GPA.

I became interested in science when I was a young child. I enjoy teaching others and consider it a life-long passion I am pursuing. Outside of science and research, I enjoy everything outdoor Colorado has to offer. I hike with my dog, snowboard and fly fish. I am from Texas and moved here 2.5 years ago to pursue my Ph.D. I am currently a doctoral candidate in the laboratory of Dr. John Cambier, distinguished professor and chair of the Department of Immunology and Microbiology at the University of Colorado, School of Medicine.
