When I was studying biology and genetics at university I was constantly impressed with the the advancements of science and technology. As an anthropologist, I love learning about social development and seeing how structures of kinship and family vary across cultures. Coming from an amazing family filled with love and support, these factors solidified my position that there are many ways to build a family and that everyone deserves to have a chance to create their own. The technology exists for this to happen, and I never had an issue donating blood or my body to science (hopefully after death!), so it made sense for me to donate for such a good cause.
I graduated with my Bachelor of Science degree last year, and I am currently waiting to hear back on my Master of Science program applications (should know within a few weeks!) for admission this fall. I currently teach and tutor high school and college students in math, reading interpretation, scientific analysis, and analytical writing. Some of my favorite academic subjects are biology, genomics, medical anthropology, primatology, and history. I have two cats and one rescued German Shepherd mix that I love. I really enjoy reading, watching movies, and taking my dog on adventures. I grew up competing on the swim team, and to this day being on/near the water is my favorite way to spend my day.
Hi future parents, I know if you're at this place it's probably not because everything went perfectly according to plan. Sometimes that happens and it sucks. Whether this was your plan A, B, C, or (bless you heart) D, I'd love to talk to you about how I can make this plan the one that works for you.
