I was born and raised in Lawrenceville, and after spending five years in California for college, I am excited to be back home! As an undergrad I combined my love for the humanities and the sciences in my interdisciplinary Human Biology major. I love understanding what makes us all human – from our cells to our cultures. I am passionate about increasing the quality of written science communication, although I also love to read literature and work on my own creative writing.

I enjoyed getting to meet a diversity of people on campus and in the Bay Area through my various extracurriculars in college. I worked as a patient health educator at a free clinic, was a writing tutor for the Stanford writing center, and volunteered as a peer counselor on campus. After graduation, I was hired to work as a Course Associate – a full-time TA – to teach the 100+ college sophomores who take the Human Biology core curriculum. Through these experiences I learned how to explain complex issues in an engaging and clear way and understood the importance of being an empathetic listener. As a tutor I enjoy creating a supportive learning environment where everyone can feel comfortable, and I strongly believe that cultivating a love for learning is the basis for sustainable academic success. The subjects I most often tutor are Biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Writing (History or English), and MCAT.

In my time back in New Jersey I’ve worked as a substitute teacher at the Pennington School, as a private tutor and have volunteered with the Pride Center of NJ. I’ve just arrived home in the States after spending six months in South Africa doing field research with chacma baboons on their behavior and interactions with human communities. This upcoming year I am applying to PhD programs in the hopes of studying Human Evolution and Behavior.
