- Biology and Environmental Science
Pre-Healthcare Program Coordinator
In the fall semester, I have the opportunity to teach both Human Anatomy (BIO 203) and Gross Anatomy (BIO 415). Students enrolled in these courses learn anatomy through radiographic images, models, clinical case studies, and cadaveric dissection. I am very fortunate to be able to teach undergraduate courses which enable students to dissect and learn from human cadavers. In the spring semester, I teach Physiology (BIO 370) a writing intensive course where students conduct independent research projects and present their results annually at the Undergraduate Scholar's Forum. Other classes I have taught include: Human Biology for non-majors (BIO 107), Bioprocesses (BIO 114), Environmental Toxicology (BIO 300). Since joining the faculty, I have also taught Westminster Seminar and an Honors Seminar, and offered numerous opportunities for Independent Study (BIO 398). I put a lot of work into my courses and I expect the same commitment from my students. Although the bar is high, I have seen many students live up to and even exceed my expectations.
In my 'free' time, I can be found answering student emails at 1:00 am, co-leading a Girl Scout Troop, helping wayward box turtles cross busy roads, or hanging out with my two wonderful children.
