    Biography

    My passion for science education, outreach and research developed during my time as an undergraduate molecular biology student at Millersville University. During my time at Millersville I had the opportunity to be a teaching assistant for an upper level developmental biology class. I helped teach this class alongside my research advisor of two years, where I helped develop and guide small laboratory projects with students. Because of my research and TA experience with my advisor Dr. Judy Cebra-Thomas, I had the opportunity to take part in the Portal to the Public NSF outreach program at the North Museum in Lancaster, PA. This invaluable experience taught me the importance of scientists communicating their research with their communities, providing role models for developing students, and helping people of all backgrounds and ages to understand the connections of science to their everyday lives. These values for education, outreach, and research have guided me throughout my years as a Research Laboratory Manager at both the University of Pennsylvania and UD (under Dr. Sarah Millar, and Dr. Salil Lachke respectively), as well as a Molecular Biology graduate student under Dr. Melinda Duncan in the Biology Department at UD.

    Preceptor role

    As a preceptor at the Harker ISE Lab, I help coordinate and teach introductory integrated Biology and Chemistry classes. In this role, I teach active learning modules during studio, attend and assist with active learning modules in both Biology and Chemistry lectures, and engage students during laboratory activities. I help develop and plan laboratory, studio and lecture activities. I coordinate with the teaching team, Lab Technicians, and IT Specialist to ensure all of the active learning modules, and laboratory activities are prepared for the course. As a preceptor, I am also responsible for advising and mentoring students, Biology and Chemistry Graduate Teaching Assistants, and undergraduate student volunteers. It is this last responsibility that I value most in my position as preceptor, and encourage students to attend regular office hours. One of my passions aside from teaching and mentoring, is engaging in STEM outreach opportunities within UD and the surrounding Delaware community. My position as preceptor enables me to take part in and lead STEM outreach programs. My main interest and focus in STEM outreach is assisting underrepresented populations in developing key skills in STEM disciplines, and connecting high school educators to researchers and educators within higher education.
