I began my position at York University in 2018 and am currently have the pleasure of teaching a variety of first year chemistry courses for both chemistry and non-science major undergraduate students.

What advice would give to undergraduate women who are interested in pursuing a career in STEM?

My advice for undergraduate women who are interested in pursuing a career in STEM would be to not be afraid to follow the path less travelled. Pursuing a career in STEM as a female may come with certain challenges at times, however do not allow these challenges to minimize your goals and the unique perspective and talents you bring to this beautiful field.
