Bachelor in Science (Major in Pre Med and Minor in Chemistry)
I recently came to Quillen College of Medicine in January of 2011 as an addition to the division of medical education in academic affairs and as an instructor in the anatomy course. I completed a general surgery PGY-1 year in the Mercer University School of Medicine residency program at the Medical Center of Central Georgia. During my residency training I was appointed by the School of Medicine as a Clinical Instructor in the Department of Surgery. The previous year I was an anatomy instructor at The Mercer University School of Medicine for both the medical & CRNA students. Like medicine teaching is opportunity to help others, while continuing to share my love for anatomy with developing physicians. I believe my combined experience in both education and healthcare provides a strong foundation for implementing a unique teaching style to the benefit of the students. Mercer Medical School uses a problem based learning (PBL) curriculum in which student involvement and interaction are paramount to success. However, the CRNA course I taught was a combined lecture and PBL curriculum, giving me exposure to a more instructive style of education including the development of power point study and lecture material. My experience with multifaceted curriculums, in both my education and instruction has not only prepared, but also inspired me to continue my career in education.

Anatomy Instructor at Mercer University School of Medicine for Medical & CRNA students 2008-2009
I was an anatomy instructor over both the medical students and the Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA) students. I generated an extensive series of self-teaching power points covering development, histology, and gross anatomy. Instructional duties included CRNA gross anatomy lectures, class and individual student resources in the laboratory and classroom for all students, overseeing the CRNA and medical student cadaver dissections, generating and proctoring the gross anatomy portions of the exams, and providing the necessary gross anatomy prosected specimens. I also assisted Dr. Young with his endocrine related stem cell research.
