About Susan

I fell in love with hemoglobin and biochemistry when I was a freshman at Rice University (Houston, TX), as I realized how the predictable principles of chemistry impacted biological function and disease. As a biochemistry grad student at UNC-Chapel Hill, I taught nursing students and tutored med students in the midst of doing research. Between my MS and PhD degrees at UNC, I worked in both industrial and medical research settings and understand their distinct priorities. Over the past 30+ years I have had the opportunity to do research on a wide range of topics. These studies have used a wide range of laboratory techniques in immunology/immunohemistry, classic biochemistry, a smattering of molecular biology and a heavy dose of tissue culture of a wide range of cells.
More recently, I briefly taught and tutored high school anatomy, biology and chemistry to students now my own children's ages. I am currently employed at North Carolina Central University to help write scientific publications and grant proposals. As a tutor, I hope to help chemistry and biology students set and achieve goals that will allow them to overcome their areas of weakness. For those who generally struggle with science, I hope to give them a new view of the fascinating stories that science tells. And for all my students, I hope to inspire their inherent creative and critical thinking abilities.
