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. I settled in Wisconsin after moving around the midwest for family and employment. The proximity of the Medical College of Wisconsin to Milwaukee inspired me to continue my education in the hopes of one day working alongside the scientists and physicians who endeavor to improve the lives of their patients. Now, creating a web site and bioinformatic solutions for scientists in the Advanced Ocular Imaging Program is a creative and challenging new chapter.
