EducationI was born and raised in the Dallas area before moving to Houston to attend school. I graduated from Rice University with a Bachelor of Arts in Visual and Dramatic Arts with Dual Concentrations in Political Science and Biological Sciences. I was pre-medical for 3 years and have a strong background in natural sciences and math. I graduated with a 3.74 GPA overall.
After graduation, I was offered an AmeriCorps placement (basically the domestic Peace Corps) in Austin, where I have been living and working for two years. I just recently finished my Master's degree in Higher Education and Student Affairs and recently moved to Springfield for a new job.
ExperienceAs an AmeriCorps member, I worked for an education non-profit that serves low income and first generation students to help them get into and make it through college. My work involved helping them refile financial aid documents, keeping up with class loads and schedules, connecting them with campus resources and activities, and aiding in the university transfer process.
I have been tutoring, both formally and informally, for about 6 years. At Rice, I worked as an Academic Fellow, a tutor for students at each residential college. I tutored current college students in chemistry, biology lab, organic chemistry, and physics at their request. Additionally, I worked as a teaching assistant for an Experimental Biology lab for two semesters after taking the class and being selected by my professor. I spent the majority of the time running lab experiments, grading papers, and aiding students in writing results and papers.
In Austin, I tutored students in physics, chemistry, pre-calculus, geometry, algebra, and middle school math. I can work with both trig and non-trig based physics, including EMag, Mechanics, Fluids, Waves and Optics, and Nuclear.

For parents with college aged students, I also do college application help. This can include essay editing, researching universities, and application assistance.
HobbiesIf there is one hobby in my life, it is laughing. Majoring in theater puts you in contact with a lot of talented people with a lot of energy, so laughing was and remains a regular activity for me. I am still extremely interested in theater, even though I currently work in education. I choose education after working for orientation at my university and fell in love with student affairs and development.
I am a huge fan of reading and tend to read a book every couple of weeks. Recent reads have included The Color of Water and Ready Player One. Ironically, my two favorite classes in college where my two English seminars, even though I swore in high school I would never take an English class in college.
I am also a huge culture person. I love learning about different areas of the world. Living in Houston was amazing for this, as I got to interact directly with a wide range of cultural backgrounds. After being in New York for a short time, I am excited to continue to learn about opinions and lifestyles much different that my own.
