I take great joy in guiding others to best appease their target audience with intent and clarity. Having worked in 7 countries to date, I have developed a nuance around genuine interpersonal communication, and take pride in helping others develop that skill for themselves.
I have managed and operated several production-focused laboratories since graduating from Occidental College. Fundamental skills include titrimetry, micropipette, enzymatic analysis, creation of standard solutions, pH analysis, and spectrophotometry.
Several years of experience working with local government agencies with regards to: groundwater quality, air quality, agricultural compliance.
HobbiesIn my spare time I enjoy connecting with the local community in various ways, including:

Though I was not fortunate enough to have a tutor growing up, I strive to be a positive influence to students through my volunteering and coaching activities. I do this knowing full well how impactful having a non-family role model can be for students in their journey of personal growth/understanding. I look forward to connecting with you and learning how I can best help your individual needs.
