I was born in Maryland but lived up north very briefly before my family moved to Nashville, TN, which is where I’ve spent most of my life, enjoying 50⁰ winters and drinking sweet tea. I’ve been fascinated by science for as long as I can remember, reading books on animal behavior, psychology, and anything else I could get my hands on. I attended Belmont University, majoring in Biology with a Premed emphasis. As a part of the Honors Program, we were required to write a thesis and this was what introduced me to the wonders of scientific research. I wanted to explore this career path instead of medicine and so I decided to pursue a Master’s degree at Lipscomb University. Under the guidance of Dr. Beth Conway, I was able to bolster my research experience by studying the role of the endothelin axis in invasive breast cancer. After graduating, I knew I wanted to do research and that brought me to Case Western and Dr. Keri’s lab, where I feel ideally positioned to contribute to our understanding of breast cancer and development.
