Bio

I am currently working as an analytical chemist in the petroleum industry and have been in this field for over 2 years. I have a BS in chemistry with a concentration in biochemistry from California State University - Bakersfield. While in school, I assisted one of my professors with his research on capsaicin, the pungent compound responsible for producing the heat in peppers.

I am currently working as an analytical chemist in the petroleum industry and have been in this field for over 2 years. I have a BS in chemistry with a concentration in biochemistry from California State University - Bakersfield. While in school, I assisted one of my professors with his research on capsaicin, the pungent compound responsible for producing the heat in peppers. Through my research I learned how to create synthetic capsaicin by assaying the building blocks of the molecule in a test tube. The goal of my research was to treat certain fungal infections with synthetic capsaicin.

In addition to performing research, I was a tutor for many students at the high school and college level. I tutored for general chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, and physical chemistry. I enjoy sharing my passion for chemistry with everyone I tutor and hope to inspire them to enjoy it as much as I do.

In school I also took math courses from algebra 1 through calculus 3. I use the math I learned on a daily basis at work to calculate concentrations of solutions, determining areas under curves and other calculations to complete my job tasks.

I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge and experience with everyone I am given an opportunity to help.

Swimming

Swimming

I have been coaching/teaching swimming for the last 8 years. I started at the age of 18 teaching young kids aged 3-7 to get comfortable in water and learn the basic strokes. As I went to school I became an age group coach for the Davis aqua monsters for 3 years where I coached kids ranging in age from 3 to 12. I moved to Bakersfield, CA where I was an age group coach for Roadrunner aquatics as well as an assistant coach for the California State University - Bakersfield men's and women's swim team. In addition to my coaching experience, I have been a competitive swimmer since the age of 12. I was a 7 time all american in high school and earned a full ride scholarship to swim collegiately at the division 1 level where I earn first team all conference honors all four years.
