About Me:

I have been teaching at Hawkeye Community College since 2010, and as a full-time chemistry instructor since 2011. I enjoy helping enthusiastic and willing students who are interested in learning the material. I also attend workshops to keep up to date with new teaching and lab techniques.

My interests include spending time with family, reading for pleasure (Fantasy and Science Fiction mainly) and running Tough Mudders. I really enjoy trying new recipes and spending time outdoors camping or just being active.
