As hard as it is sometimes, keep believing that you belong!

WHAT DO YOU DO?

I am researching Chemistry Education. I am trying to find new ways to teach chemistry so that we can train the next generation of chemists. Part of my research involves creating learning tools and assessing how the tool affect the way information is being learned.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?

I always loved chemistry and I always loved teaching. My high school teacher instilled a love of chemistry in me by making it fun and interesting.

Teaching and learning is something I cherish and believe is important. For this reason, researching how students learn chemistry merged both of my passions.

WHAT DO YOU LOOK AT & THINK, "I WISH YOUNGER ME WOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WAS POSSIBLE?"

That I could do a PhD. As a woman with two disabilities, doing a PhD in Chemistry always seemed impossible.

WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?

I love that in this field I am always learning. This world is amazing, and learning about the molecules and the invisible world is a wonder!

BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?

Find a mentor. Someone who will help you and build you up!

As hard as it is sometimes, keep believing that you belong!
