What happens when education meets caring and collides with chemistry? A sort of mentorship magic, illustrated in today’s episode.
Amy Bell interviews Dr. Marsha Cole and Sierra Napoleon. Dr. Cole is a lecturer in the chemistry department, and Sierra is a senior in her capstone class.
Dr. Cole has had quite an academic journey, from not believing she could go to college to getting a doctoral degree in chemistry and becoming a lecturer. Her life was changed by mentorship, and she is now passionate about mentoring others.
Sierra tells us how Dr. Cole has helped her become a more confident chemist. For her capstone project, Sierra recently studied homeopathic remedies to treat gynecological infections, so they explain what homeopathic remedies are and why someone would use them.
