I am a senior majoring in Human Biology, Health, and Society in the College of Human Ecology. I work with Ph.D. candidate Brittany Schutrum in the Fischbach Lab, and we are investigating the role of hyaluronic acid synthase overexpression on the growth characteristics of breast epithelial spheroids.

I am motivated to better the lives of people affected by cancer through research and clinical practice. I hope to pursue medical school and continue research in cancer as a clinician-scientist. Outside the lab, I enjoy listening to music, painting, and running.
