As I studied science in high school, I fell in love with chemistry. I love the mathematical background and the way all of the pieces fit together to make a complete picture of the world we live in.

As I attended graduate school at the University of Illinois at Chicago, I realized I loved the academic community and never wanted to leave, hence my decision to become a college professor. It is my goal to impart my love of chemistry to the students I teach in hopes that they will leave my class with an appreciation for chemistry and science in general. I also find that my passion for teaching and for students extends into my other role at Trine as Honors Program Director, which gives me the opportunity to interact with students of all majors on campus.

When not in the classroom or in the laboratory, I spend time with my husband, Craig, and our children, Katie, Rebecca, Adam and Elizabeth. We enjoy working in our gardens, making crafts, and volunteering at our church.
