Sarah Shoemaker

Sarah ShoemakerAssociate Professor of Health Sciences

I have always loved science. I originally wanted to earn a PhD and enter the world of academic research, but in grad school I realized that I enjoyed learning about research more than I liked doing it. So, I quit my PhD program and transitioned to teaching -- and I have never looked back! I have been teaching at NCCC since 2010.

I live in Saranac Lake with my husband, stepsons, daughter, dog, and cat. I don't have many interesting hobbies -- I love to read and I love to be outside in the Adirondacks (though I prefer sitting in a chair by the lake to hiking up a mountain). And I don't think I could live without coffee or chocolate.
