Becoming the Mentor

As a first-generation college graduate, role models were difficult to come by. Most of my life decisions were a series of trial and error.

Figuring it all out on a touch-and-go trial definitely resulted in a fair share of otherwise avoidable missteps along the way, but it eventually accumulated as a collection of experiences. Today, those experiences serve to provide me with the tools to help the next generation of future scientists find their true potential.

I barely made it through high school. Living with elderly parents with chronic illnesses, I was forced to balance my scholastic education with the learning experience of providing for my family. I worked hard to balance my schoolwork with the work required to earn an income and balance a checkbook, but struggled to accomplish the seemingly overwhelming task of keeping everything in working order.
