I have been working with students as both an advisor and instructor since 2009. At Manor College I was the transfer advisor for 6 years, helping Manor's students continue their education at a 4 year institution after completing an associates degree. I also taught Gen Chem labs at Manor, Arcadia University and Gwynedd Mercy University during this time. I started at Penn State Abington in 2016 as an Assistant Teaching Professor of Chemistry, and in 2018 I added the role of Health Professions Advisor. I am passionate about helping every student find the right path and achieve their career and life goals.

I am currently working with a small group of chemistry faculty from other Penn State campuses on developing general chemistry remediation courses and on a study of student perception of their abilities in the sciences before and after they complete such a course.
