Upon graduating, I hope to work at a teaching college because I find teaching to be incredibly fulfilling. I have always enjoyed the feeling of having a student finally understand a topic. I also feel as though tutoring is a learning experience for the tutor- sometimes you need to think about a topic in 5 different ways before you find a way that fits how the student learns best.

HobbiesI like to spend as much of my spare time outside as possible hiking, kayaking, gardening, etc. I enjoy cooking and baking. I own two parrots and volunteer at a local parrot sanctuary, where I help with outreach, grant writing, and other fundraising opportunities.
