BA Biology MS Environmental Management Instructor of Biology at Lehigh Carbon Community College and Cedar Crest College. 4 years experience tutoring biology at high school and college levels.
Over ten years of teaching experience ranging from the classroom to private tutoring.
While getting my undergraduate degree in Biology, I studied botany both in an academic and a field setting. I studied under botanist Amy Faivre, who dedicated her research to studying succulents endemic to the Florida peninsula. I performed field work in two areas: non-native invasive plant removal and remediation, and propagating native plant species. I also taught native plant classes at the Wildlands Conservancy and Land Trust for two years. Additionally, the classes I teach at the college level have an in-depth botany lab.
In addition to taking Evolution and Advanced Mendelian Genetics as an undergraduate, I taught two Genetics Labs at Lehigh University and the genetics portions of Bio 101, Bio 105, and Bio110 at Lehigh Carbon Community College. Additionally, my undergraduate degree focus in Biodiversity included in-depth population genetics.
