I started at VU in 2015. I went to Southern Illinois University, Carbondale and have B.S. and M.S. degrees in microbiology, molecular biology, and biochemistry. I teach microbiology for health science and biology majors. I also get to teach our BIOL 100 course for non-science majors. I advise Molecular & Laboratory Biology majors, Pre-Chiropractic, Pre- Physician Assistant, and Pre-Occupational Therapy majors.
When I'm Not Teaching
Outside of work, I enjoy reading books, long-distance running, and working in our small orchard and garden with family, friends, and our very enthusiastic dogs.
