I am thrilled that my job is to do everything I love most: learn new things, work towards shared goals, and build community.Introductory and general biology classes are my favorites because every semester each person finds new topics to be amazed by or curious about, including me! My not-so-secret goal is help others get passionate about biology, and to access the resources they need to pursue that passion. Science should be accessible to everyone. I have taught introductory biology lectures and labs at Diablo Valley College, Contra Costa College, Berkeley City College, Laney College, and UC Berkeley, and am now proud to be part of Santa Rosa Junior College.
