My eventual goal is to work at a teaching college - I find teaching to be incredibly fulfilling. I have always enjoyed the feeling of having a student finally understand a topic. My dedication has been rewarded by positive reviews in the courses I have taught/co-taught and on University Tutor. Tutoring also tends to be an incredible learning experience for the tutor because everyone learns differently.

As an undergraduate I was also heavily involved with 5 student organizations focused on sustainability and 1 focused on campus events. In addition, I carried out marine science research with a Gettysburg College faculty member and as a research intern at the Virginia Institute of Marine Sciences.
HobbiesI love science and being curious about the world around me. My academic experiences have been varied but I have loved them all- from blue mussels in Maine (undergraduate research), to primary producers in Chesapeake Bay (undergraduate research), to fisheries in Kenya (dissertation research). I grew up in NY but recently moved to Seattle to embark on my new academic adventure that allows me to merge my love for birds and the ocean- a post-doctorate position on penguin biology. Outside of work, I am passionate about animals, outdoor activities, traveling, cooking, science education, and sustainability. During my graduate career, I developed a program to send unwanted research equipment to schools in low income areas to improve access to science education. I am also on the board of directors of a parrot sanctuary in NY and own two (adopted) parrots.
