I have taught at Cape Fear Community College since 2003. I teach General Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, Microbiology, and Genetics. I love them all – biology is awesome! Before coming to CFCC I did a Research Fellowship at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, TX and I taught chemistry and physical science at South Stokes High School in Walnut Cove, NC.
