I grew up in Eugene, Oregon before moving to Seattle for college. Here, I attended the University of Washington where I received a BS in Biochemistry. I worked as an undergraduate research assistant for three years in the UW’s Department of Radiology where I focused on the impact of cannabis use during pregnancy on infant brain development, and I hope to attend medical school in the next few years. In the Arnoult Lab I will be focusing on telomere biology. I’m thrilled to explore Colorado more, and outside of work, you can probably find me running and camping in the mountains, or caring for my extravagant collection of houseplants!
