About me:
I have a BS in biochemistry from Cal Poly, SLO (Go mustangs!) and a PhD in chemistry from the University of Oregon (Go Ducks!).  I taught at Bakersfield College from 1999-2004, Cal Poly from 2004-2012, and have been teaching at Cuesta College since fall of 2012.  I love teaching freshmen level classes and have taught introductory general chemistry, chemistry for non-science majors, general chemistry, general chemistry for engineers, and survey of biochemistry.  I enjoy helping students learn chemistry and improve their study skills, so if you need help, please come talk with me.  My current schedule and contact information are linked above.

If my name sounds familiar, I am not the only Dr. Baxley to teach at Cuesta College!  My husband, Greg Baxley, has been teaching chemistry here since 2004.  We taught together at Bakersfield College and are very happy to be working together again.
