Brief Biographical Information


As a life-long Milwaukee area native and daughter of two Clinical Laboratory Scientists, I have grown up immersed in a world of healthcare, with a genuine respect for the research conducted at Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin. My own interest in research began during my undergraduate career as a laboratory technician at UWM, where I studied the phylogenetics of the American Badger in Wisconsin.

I have always had an affinity for scientific research; however, my shift into the human realm of healthcare and research began with employment at a local assisted living facility, and has continued with my current position at the Eye Institute. I enjoy the dynamic and challenging work environment that clinical research introduces, and look forward to interacting with patients and helping to further our knowledge and treatment options for some of the debilitating eye conditions that affect our population. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my dogs and family, reading, and running competitively.
