My career path and accomplishments since graduating from Alma:
After graduating Alma, earned my Ph.D. at the University of Notre Dame. During my graduate work I specialized in metal-catalyzed C-C and C-N bond formations for the synthesis of highly substituted tertiary or quaternary centers. I also spent a lot of time during my Ph.D. as a teaching assistant since I knew I wanted to teach at the college/university level. That experience granted me my first job as an assistant professor at Trine University in Angola, IN and I have been there since. I enjoy teaching general chemistry courses, but my expertise is in organic chemistry. I have taught Organic Chemistry I and II courses and labs. I enjoy tackling a hard subject for students with enthusiasm and encouragement.
