Prior to my enrollment at UVA, I received a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Gettysburg College in Pennsylvania, graduating cum laude and with departmental honors in biochemistry.

I am a graduate student at the University of Virginia, pursuing a PhD in Biophysics. Prior to my enrollment at UVA, I received a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Gettysburg College in Pennsylvania, graduating cum laude and with departmental honors in biochemistry. While there, I was college-designated peer mentor for General Chemistry for 2 years in group and one-on-one settings. I also was a teaching assistant for one semester of a microbiology lab course. I find great satisfaction in the "aha" moments of teaching science, and growing alongside students in my knowledge and as an educator.

In addition to being active in the sciences, music has played a large role in my life. I've played flute for 13 years and received professional private lessons for 6 years. I have played in large orchestral-setting ensembles as well as in marching band. In marching band, I acted as a section leader for 2 years each in high school and at Gettysburg College. My experience as a section leader has sharpened my skill in relating difficult musical concepts such as rhythm and shaping to large groups. I am also well-versed in music theory, 3 years worth of course work in the subject. I love expressing myself through music and sharing that experience with others.

I received high marks in both the verbal skill (162/170) and math (159/170) on the GRE. I took many practice tests and have found little tricks in reasoning to help one survive the timed test.

My passion for science has fueled the desire to teach others about the molecular world. I graduated with a BS in biochemistry & molecular biology from Gettysburg College and have taken extensive coursework in biology and chemistry. In graduate school, my main research focus has been microbiology, using biochemical techniques.

Flute has always been an important aspect of my life, having played for the last 13 years. I have extensive training on intermediate-advanced techniques through private teaching in high school and college. Further, I have participated in master-classes which have honed my skill for careful listening and teaching difficult concepts.

I am an excited, experienced scientist, musician and teacher who would love to share knowledge and help make difficult concepts easy to grasp.
