Experienced life scientist, educator, and award-winning student government leader. I will defend my dissertation in spring 2016. Seeking opportunities to apply the research, project management, communication, and leadership skills I've honed during my graduate career in new ways.





Emory University

PhD, Neuroscience

For my PhD I synthesized information from neurobiology, genetics, cell biology and medical literature to formulate hypotheses and design, perform, troubleshoot, and interpret experiments. I initiated international collaborations with expert scientists to strengthen my projects and wrote successfully funded federal and private grant applications.

Emory Student Government Association

Student Leader

In four years on Emory's university-wide Student Government Association I served as a Legislator and later Assistant Chair of the Finance Committee. SGA governs the use of Student Activity Fee monies (annual budget: ~$2.5M). I also served as Secretary and President of the Graduate Student Council, representing ~1100 Emory PhD students in the Laney Graduate School.
