Tina earned a B.S. in chemistry from Gettysburg College in 2005 and a M.A. in inorganic chemistry from the University of Delaware in 2008. She arrived at St. Lawrence in 2012, first teaching general chemistry labs and eventually teaching in the First Year Program. Her FYP courses include Sherlock Holmes and the Art and Science of Reasoning (co-taught with Jeff Maynes) and Spice, Sex, and Science: History through the Eyes of a Chemist.
In her current role on campus, Tina provides one-on-one advising to students seeking help with course selection, time management, metacognition (thinking about one's thinking), study, reading, and note-taking skills, and hosts workshops focusing on these skills. She also works with the Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) and Peer Tutoring Program.
A Lancaster (pronounced: LANG-kiss-ter), PA native, Tina is currently working on her EdD in Higher Ed Administration at Northeastern University. When she's not meeting with students or working on homework, she enjoys board games, attempting new recipes, exploring the North Country, singing with The Any Music Singers (TAMS), and hopes to one day meet a majestic moose in the Adirondacks.
