Role at the SALT Center: As a Learning Support Services Coordinator, I assist in the recruitment, hiring, training, and supervision of tutoring staff. I also oversee the Math & Science Lab and the Business Lab. This includes facilitating trainings and leading workshops for tutors, as well as cultivating new methods for supporting students in their math, science, and business courses.
Education: The University of Arizona, B.A., French; M.S., Environmental Science; Ph.D., Environmental Health Sciences (in progress).
Hometown: Kingman, Arizona
Activities/Interests: I began working at the SALT Center in 2013. I truly enjoy helping students define their educational goals and develop a plan to work toward academic success, however they define that for themselves.
I understand what it’s like to be a student because I am one! As an undergraduate, I majored in French with a minor in mathematics. My research foci for my Master’s program included groundwater contaminant fate and transport, specifically for heavy metals and excess nutrients, groundwater modeling, and conducting environmental and human health risk assessments. I am currently working toward a Ph.D. in Environmental Health Sciences with a minor in Biosystems Engineering. I am also an active member of the campus club Engineers Without Borders - UA; I spent a year as the Project Manager of our sustainable irrigation project for a rural farming community in the Dominican Republic.
In my spare time, I love trying new foods, hiking with my dogs, and reading whodunit novels.
