Tutor Information


I obtained my Bachelors in Chemistry from the University of West Georgia. During my time in college, I served as a Lab TA and a Chemistry Workshop Leader, where I gained hands-on experience in leading my peers in chemistry problem solving. Through my research experiences at UWG and Michigan State University (as a summer research intern), I had several opportunities to publicly present research posters to a diversity of scientific and general audiences. Beyond college, I have 5 years of professional experience as an analytical chemist. With The Coca-Cola Company, I have 3.5 years of experience in the analysis of recycled plastics. I also worked an additional 1.5 years in public service as a Waste Water Analyst for Dekalb County Watershed Management. In all roles, I bring with me an enthusiasm for learning and sharing, and a spirit of encouragement and leadership. I
