I attended community college where I obtained my Associate’s in Science degree. I also earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a concentration in ecology/environmental biology from Averett University. After college, I worked for a chemical manufacturing plant as a quality control technician for about four years. Currently, I’m working as a chemistry technician with my main focus being on running samples for a tobacco company. I also work on research within the chemistry department. Our current focus is on biodiesel.
