Major:
Biochemistry
Hometown:
Tuscaloosa, AL

I was born and raised in Tuscaloosa as an Auburn fan. I am a biochemistry major at Auburn and hope to pursue a Master’s degree in General Science Secondary Education after I graduate. I am a member of the Honors College at Auburn. Through the Honors Serves Organization, I tutor local high school students for the ACT. I also work as a barista at a cafe and pretend to know a lot about coffee. I first fell in love with Chemistry in my high school Chemistry class thanks to my incredible teacher. My career goal is to show high school students how interesting and enjoyable chemistry can be just like my teacher did in high school and hopefully teach them some valuable life lessons along the way.

Major:
Biomedical Sciences and Psychology, Pre-Med
Hometown:
Daphne, AL

I’m currently concurrent majoring in Biomedical Sciences and Psychology with a Pre-Medicine concentration at Auburn in hopes to attend Medical School and become an OB/GYN. I’m very interested in the cognitive learning processes of students in college and how teaching practices/classroom behaviors mold their learning outcomes. Through DBER, I hope to gain insight into the empirical evidence behind the instructional practices in STEM courses. As a student, I’m very involved in my Honor’s Fraternity, Phi Sigma Pi, and the Be Well Hut, which is a Health and Wellness Promotion organization. I’m captain of my intramural soccer team, I tutor in Organic Chemistry, and I’m a dog mom to an incredibly sassy Cocker Spaniel. During my free time, I enjoy traveling and expanding my cooking abilities beyond boxed pasta!

Major:
Biomedical Sciences, Pre-Pharmacy
Hometown:
Thousand Oaks, CA

I’m currently a Biomedical Sciences major with a concentration in Pre-Pharmacy. I hope to one day become a pharmacist and work for a pharmaceutical company focusing on oncology research. I’m very interested in how different methods of teaching affect student outcomes since some of my greatest role models have been my teachers. I was raised in Thousand Oaks, California where I was a part of the National Charity League as well as volunteering for our local animal shelter. I’m currently involved in tutoring students for physics as well as working with Relay for Life. In my free time I love hiking, swimming and taking my energetic cat Nova for long walks.
