Blending Research with Teaching
“I tell students to always believe in themselves, and when I see students think about this and realize that every person can exceed expectations and become what no one thought they could be is awesome to see. Helping guide a student to a great outcome is a special feeling.”
Going That Next Step
“I am a teacher by trade, so I highly value education. I knew for a while that I wanted to go on and teach a science-related discipline in higher education, so my master’s degree has provided me with teaching experiences in higher education, as well as my first taste of research that would be expected of me as a university professor.”
Putting Skills Into Action
“Being able to coach the women’s tennis team in strength and conditioning has been my favorite experience at UNI. This group of ladies is nothing but disciplined and hardworking, and being able to make an impact on them has been very rewarding.”
