I am a woman and a member of the LGBTQIA community. I am passionate about working with students and faculty from diverse backgrounds.

Though I was trained as a biochemist, I am now a Cell, Developmental and Molecular Biologist. In my free time, I love to be outside (hiking or biking) and I enjoy photography.
