I’m from Huntington Beach, CA, but have had the pleasure of living in Salt Lake City for the last 9 years. I have a bachelor’s degree in Biology with an emphasis in Cell and Molecular Biology and a degree in Medical Laboratory Science, both from the University of Utah. As anundergraduate, I started doing research in an immunology lab studying T cells and melanoma. After being certified as an MLS, I concurrently started working in a clinical microbiology lab.
My experience as an MLS coupled with my research experience attracted me to the U’s Masterof Science in Lab Medicine and Biomed Science program because of its versatility amongst both clinical and basic research laboratories. I believe this program will help me continue to blend bench-side science with primary patient care and allow me to be a leader in the next frontier of healthcare. Outside of school and work, I like to explore the great outdoors by hiking, climbing, and camping. I also enjoy going to metal and rock shows, playing some Zelda, hitting the gym, and chilling with my Fiancé and cat.
