Biography

After completing my Bachelor's degree from UMass, Amherst I moved to Burlington, Vermont to join the Biochemistry Department in the College of Medicine as a research technician. After a few years I moved to Boston to begin graduate work in the Department of Chemistry at Boston College. While a graduate student, I privately tutored a number of students in high school and college-level chemistry. In my free time, I enjoy yoga, hiking, and spending time with family.
