Teaching is a process of learning from your students, colleagues, and the community. This is a lifelong journey where students learn new ideas, strategies, and philosophies. None of my classes are the same because it depends on who is in the room. I enjoy bringing practical and real-life examples into the classroom to fully equip students for their positions in the medical field. My passion is to give back to the students so that they can pay it forward after they leave my classroom.
I am a graduate of Pennsylvania State University with a degree in Biobehavioral Health. During my time at Penn State, I was involved in various things that revolved around the medical field. I began volunteering at the Health Center in my junior year as a Drug and Alcohol Counselor as well as testing and counseling students for HIV. My passion to get involved in health care grew after graduation and I decided to enroll in Suburban Technical School to become a Medical Assistant. I have an extensive background in the medical field which includes working in the specialties of Family Practice, Infectious Disease, and OBGYN. I am so grateful for my experiences in the field because it makes me the teacher that I am today. I am currently embarking on a new journey to become a Registered Nurse, and I am excited to see how that will simultaneously enhance my learning and teaching experience.
