Tina earned a B.S. in chemistry from Gettysburg College in 2005 and a M.A. in 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.
Outside of the classroom and lab, Tina is a member of the University Chorus and The Any Music Singers (TAMS). She is an avid board gamer who enjoys cooking, goes exploring in the North Country, and hopes to one day meet a majestic moose in the Adirondacks.
