About Joshua

I currently work as a lab technician in a Toxicology department. I have an Associate's degree in Liberal Arts and Science, a Bachelor's degree in Forensic Science and a Bachelor's degree in Biology with a Chemistry minor. I graduated with a GPA of 3.4 and completed a three-month internship at a Medical Examiner's Office as a Forensics Investigator. To promote the love of science I was a member of the Forensic Science club at University. I also have taught environmental education part time for the outdoor classroom. I served in the United States Army for eight years and was released with an honorable discharge. I am very strong in Biology but also have experience in Algebra, Chemistry, and Physics. I feel if I can show a student how Science or Math can be incorporated into something they are interested in like sports or a future career they will be more interested and comprehend the material easier. I am a sports enthusiast and train in Boxing and Jiujitsu, I have coached Soccer and Basketball, and hold a coaching certificate from FIFA soccer organization. Because of this experience I have a strong understand of the Physiology of the human body. I currently work as a lab technician in a Toxicology department.
