I started undergrad double majoring in Civil and Environmental Engineering and Physics wanting to work with Engineers Without Borders. 3.5 years in, I realized I wanted to get to see the good I do, so I switched to Kinesiology-Clinical Exercise Physiology. I graduated, and I'm now 2/3 of the way through my Doctorate of Chiropractic. I enjoy sports (namely soccer) and weight lifting in my free time. I also have a 4-year-old black lab mix named Samus.
I have been a tutor for friends and family off-and-on since high school. Typically math and sciences, with the occasional literature lesson. Additionally, have been coaching soccer for around eight years.
