Hi! I'm Debbie. I'm a California State licensed Microbiologist with 35 years experience working in a clinical setting and also teaching medical students. I've worked in a variety of laboratory settings from large trauma center hospitals to reference laboratories, group practice labs, and even veterinary laboratories. I've been hired as a consultant to design new laboratories including hiring and training staff and writing all procedures in accordance with regulatory compliance. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Microbiology and a Master's Degree in Laboratory Management and Education. I've taught large groups of customers when I worked for a company that sold medical equipment. I've even taught children - we created some amazing science fair projects together! My favorite teaching assignments are working one on one with someone interested in working in the health care field. About me personally? I'm an animal lover, crazy about dogs, I design jewelry and plan to retire (eventually) to central America. I have two college age kids and several cats.

Working as a microbiologist for many years, I know the field well. I've worked with bacteria, fungus, parasites, and viruses from humans, animals, and even (one job I had) oranges! I've also worked with new technology called molecular biology which are methods used to detect an organisms DNA. I've trained new employees, taught students who were in laboratory internship programs, pharmacy students, medical students, and even children. I've also taught in a classroom setting.

Most microbiology courses are difficult for people. They try to cram so much information into the course and assume people know the basics. The thing is, if you are going into a health care field, you really do need a good grasp of this subject - it is so important for patient care. I explain the subject step by step in plain, easy to understand English. And cover all the information you need to pass with an A! My favorite thing about teaching is when I "see the light come on" and people say "wow. I get this now. It's not as difficult as I thought it was". You can do it too! Give me a call and we'll get you through your course!!
