Greetings! I am excited for another great year of exploring the wonderful world of science. I am originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and graduated from Saint Vincent College earning a bachelors degree in liberal arts with a concentration in natural sciences and a minor in psychology. I then earned a master's degree in science education from Montana State University. Upon graduating from college, I spent a summer studying abroad in Cuernavaca, Mexico learning about the land and culture, which was an amazing experience. When outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, gardening, reading, listening to music, playing guitar, and traveling.
