After finishing my M.Sc. I joined an organization called WWOOF and spent the next year working on different farms and backpacking throughout Europe.  After that, I further put my biology degrees to good use by moving to South Korea to become an English teacher.  Iíve spent the last 5 years teaching at various academies and universities in Korea and traveling around Asia. 


Iíve recently moved back to Nova Scotia, and Iíll be teaching the Bio 201 and 112 labs in the fall and winter semesters, respectively. When Iím not working, I enjoy spending time at my cottage, fishing, and reading.
