Brief Biographical Information
My lifelong interest in science, health and technology has shaped my background in education and work choices. From dietetics to databases, I enjoy all aspects of science, particularly the use of in silico research tools. These interests kept me moving around the Midwest until settling in Wisconsin in 2003. Since then I have immersed in Wisconsin life by enjoying the Milwaukee Brewers and vacationing "up north". Close to home in Wauwatosa, the Medical College of Wisconsin campus is brewing with innovative scientific ideas and discovery. It is rewarding to combine my skills and interests towards contributions to academic medicine, especially the highly regarded Advanced Ocular Imaging Program at the Eye Institute.
