More About Me

Before I joined the faculty of California State University, Chico in 2014, I performed post-doctoral research in the laboratory of Patrick Gunning at the University of Toronto. I joined the lab shortly after graduating with my Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2012. Prior to that I graduated from Georgia Southern University with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in chemistry as a member of the Bell Honors Program in 2006. While at Georgia Southern I played NCAA Division I softball for my entire collegiate career. And before that I lived in Florida, Arizona, Colorado and Ohio.

When I’m not in the lab or teaching, I’m taking in all that Chico has to offer with my husband, Paul. I absolutely love participating in various team sports, especially softball (of course), volleyball and soccer. In the winter I also love to snowboard, and year-round I enjoy any Super Mario, Zelda or Just Dance game for the Wii. Additionally, I recently acquired a Canon EOS Rebel T4i camera so I now have the means to thoroughly pursue my hobby of photography. Last, but not least, I am grateful for the love and support of my family (you can learn more about them here), and for the infinite blessings in my life from God.
