Great Oaks Career CenterI am presently the Instructor of Record for the Information Technology Systems & Cybersecurity program at Live Oaks Career Campus in Milford, Ohio.

Teaching and Research Associate
Arizona State University, Center for Biology and SocietyI'll package most of my experience as an educator prior to starting with Great Oaks here. I was a Teaching Associate for courses in the sciences and in the humanities at both Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona and the University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario, Canada while in the pursuit of my multiple degrees and ultimately a Ph.D. in History & Philosophy of Biology at ASU. In summer 2019, I made the difficult decision to end my PhD program and discontinue my dissertation. I completed the relevant coursework and comprehensive exams to advance to candidacy, but ultimately ended my program ABD.
