I attended Carleton College in Northfield, MN, graduating in 2016 with a BA in Biology and minor in German. I then worked for two years at Mayo Clinic in a lab studying neuroblastoma using a zebrafish model.
At UM I have been extensively involved in advocating for graduate students, serving terms as treasurer and president of the Biomedical Graduate Student Government and as secretary for the Rackham Student Government. I am currently a GEO Steward. I have also participated in science education and outreach through SEEK and MI DNA Day.
In addition to all that, I like to knit, boulder, go on brewery tours, float down the Huron river (weather permitting) and hang out with my cats, Luna and Jules.
