I started at UoM in 1991 straight out of college. In the almost 30 years I have been employed at the university I have been witness incredible advances in medical technology and scientific knowledge that are improving our lives in so many ways. It is the dynamic environment and innovative research that makes me so proud to be a part of Michigan Medicine.
During my time here I have been involved in hearing research at Kresge Hearing Research Institute and directed differentiation of pluripotent stem cells into kidney organoids for use as a model for therapeutic drug testing. I have accrued many skills including confocal microscopy, immunocytochemistry, qPCR, and cell culture.
When not at work I am an avid runner and crossword puzzle, enthusiast. I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children and love cooking for them.
