MEd Secondary Science Education (University of South Carolina)
BS Biology (University of South Carolina)
I am from Columbia, SC, where it is “famously hot!” Between the temperature and the humidity, it can be intense! Luckily, the beach is about 2 hours away! I enjoy college football (being in the South it’s hard not to be a fan), baseball, and soccer. In my spare time I like cooking, looking into all things tech, and getting some work done in the yard. Science has always been a passion of mine as it relates so much to our everyday lives.
Proverbs 3:5-6: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
I was a batboy for a minor league baseball team affiliated with the Boston Red Sox.
I love going to the gym! It is a great way to burn extra energy or to clear my head from the day’s work! I also love taking care of saltwater aquariums! If I didn’t love teaching so much, I think I would have gone into marine biology!
Bucket List Item
Visiting Italy and my mom’s hometown outside Naples.
I loved visiting Germany! Seeing a lot of the historical places that I have read about or seen in textbooks was a wonderful and eye-opening experience.
Person I’d Like to Meet
Neil Degrasse Tyson. I have seen him speak a few times and would love to meet him!
