I love to teach, and my greatest reward is when students
bring the same enthusiasm to classes that I do. I cater to a
variety of learning styles by incorporating group problem
solving, multimedia, debates, and other formats into my
lectures. My goal is to inspire my students to continue
lifelong learning in biology, sustainability, and critical

I grew up near Santa Monica, and have always been interested
in biology. Outside of teaching, I enjoy outdoor activities like
camping, hiking, and biking, as well as dance and music.
