  • B.A. from Kalamazoo College in Biology
  • Currently a second year student in the MGG PhD program

Following the completion of my undergraduate degree from Kalamazoo College, I worked in Research and Development for the Anatomic Pathology Division of Thermo Fisher Scientific. My work was focused on the development of new techniques and instrumentation to bring molecular pathology into the clinical laboratory. It was my understanding of clinical, anatomic, and molecular pathology that led me to a career in the biomedical science.  Genetics was always a favorite subject of mine, so I knew that the Wayne State Center for Molecular Medicine and Genetics would be a great place for me. Their commitment to innovation, collaboration, and quality research will provide me with the tools I need to be successful in my field.
