During my graduate studies at the University of Calgary, I greatly enjoyed working as a teaching assistant. I specifically enjoyed sharing my enthusiasm for biology with students and interacting with them as they learned in a hands-on laboratory environment. I accepted a position at St. Mary’s in 2014 to continue my teaching career.
At St. Mary’s I teach the laboratory components of first year biology and introductory genetics and ecology. I am fortunate enough to assist with instruction on field study trips to Vancouver Island and Belize for STMU’s marine biology and tropical ecology courses, respectively. One of my favourite teaching experiences has been travelling with the marine biology class to the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre on Vancouver Island, where my love for biology began.
Outside of work, I enjoy playing hockey and many outdoor activities including camping, hiking, walking my dog and gardening.
