I was born and raised in the Cleveland, Ohio area and moved to Southern Maryland in 2006 for a position as a science teacher at Henry E. Lackey High School. I worked at Lackey from 2006 to 2020 and taught a variety of science courses including earth systems, biology, chemistry, AP chemistry, AP environmental science, and AP biology. I began working at CSM as an adjunct teaching zoology in 2011, and in the fall of 2020, I began teaching full-time at CSM as an assistant professor in the School of Health and Science.  

Educational Background 

I received a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Baldwin-Wallace University in 2006 and earned my Master of Science in Chemical and Life Sciences at the University of Maryland, College Park in 2013.


My teaching style aligns most closely with a hybrid style of teaching that allows me to tailor my classes to my students’ needs and interests while infusing the experience with my own personality and interests. In my lecture courses, I lean more towards the demonstrator/coach style by incorporating multimedia presentations, activities, and demonstrations. In my lab courses, I lean more towards the delegator/group style by using guided discovery and inquiry-based learning for laboratory activities and experiments. 

I very much enjoy sharing my love of science with my students. I hope that you will consider taking one of my classes! 

I am an adjunct instructor at the University of Maryland Global Campus. I teach courses including BIOL103 Introduction to Biology; BIOL301 Human Health and Disease; and BIOL302 Bacteria, Viruses, and Health.
