Department: Life Sciences

I received a Bachelors in Biology with a concentration in Zoology from Sonoma State University and a Master's in Biology focusing on juvenile turtle growth, growth (thesis project link) also from Sonoma State University. I know more about turtles than is probably healthy. While completing my thesis, I taught biology labs and served as a Teaching Assistant for Herpetology at Sonoma State University. Through this experience, I discovered a love of teaching. After completing my thesis, I pursued a teaching credential at Dominican University. Since then I have taught at High School at the Marin School and College courses at Santa Rosa Junior College, Bakersfield College, and now, Chabot College. As someone with dyslexia, I know personally that any person can learn, and it is all about finding the strategy that works best for you. I try to encourage to explore different study strategies until they find the right fit for them.
