During my undergraduate career at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, I conducted research pertaining to the Epstein-Barre virus (EBV). This really sparked my desire to continue doing research, and after graduating with a degree in Biomedicine, I started working in the Venteicher lab. Having the opportunity to study skull base tumors in such a welcoming and collaborative environment continues to be an amazing experience, and I'm excited to see how our research will help individuals afflicted with the cancers we work with.
When I'm not in the lab, I enjoy playing board games, cribbage especially, and sports. Basically anything with friendly competition and I'm there. I also enjoy participating in musicals and finding craft projects struggle through.
