Marilyn remembers watching athletes compete for medals in the 2004 Olympics. At that time, she was teaching herself new ways to solve kinetics problems, easy ways to calculate the equivalence point, and how to know if a system is at equilibrium. In the past 12 years, Marilyn has continued to be an Olympian in the field of Chemistry!

Marilyn majored in Chemistry in one of the top schools for pre-medical school science on the east coast (F&M). She did research every year and received a scholarship to conduct research at Cornell University during her sophomore year. Marilyn went on and was admitted to the top Materials chemistry program in the country, UW-Madison. There, she taught and tutored close to 300 students!

Upon graduation, where she received teaching awards and was asked to guest lecture until moving out of state, Marilyn began working at the premier college preparatory school in Indiana. Each year, her 25-30 AP chemistry students earned a 4.5/5 average on the AP test. They scored between a 760-800 consistently on the SAT II. 

Marilyn coaches students to be the very best they can be! Her students work and make strides quickly and efficiently!

When Marilyn is not "competing" for Olympic gold in Chemistry, she enjoys reading, practicing yoga, and spending time with family.
