2013 STEM American staff bio
Derek recently received his bachelor's degree in Exercise Science from Calvin College. Derek has experience working with children from a variety of different ages and ethnicity, including English as a second language and physical education. He plans to enter the medical field in the future with a desire to educate and help people. Derek loves to travel, having visited 7 countries on 3 separate continents. A lover of science and the outdoors, he enjoys hiking, swimming, biking, and skiing.
Traveling gives me the opportunity to not just learn about local culture and customs, but also what values I can apply in my own life. I'm excited to work with the Dr. PLAY team and serve the youth of Hong Kong in subjects I am very passionate about. I love seeing new places and experiencing everything that this city has to offer."
