I am an academic advisor for Biology majors here at Iowa State. In addition to advising, I teach BIOL 110: Biology Major Orientation and coordinate the BEST Learning Community.
I began my career as an advisor in 2019 after teaching Introductory Biology at DMACC for several years. Occasionally I am a freelance logo designer for small businesses.
My graduate research focused on the importance of experiential learning and assessment efficacy in informal learning environments. I had the privilege of partnering with the Trinity River Audubon Center in Dallas, Texas to create a three-part field trip for primary- and secondary-school students.
