    In 2017, I graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Eastern Washington University. My background in general dentistry and orthognathic surgery contributed significantly to my desire to study disease, with a concentration in Cell and Molecular Biology. I enjoy studying signal transduction pathways, anomalies within such pathways, and how they relate to the initiation and progression of disease. My project examines how alternative glycosylation of transmembrane and soluble proteins are influenced by cellular differentiation and sex-specific gene expression. After I graduate with a Master of Science, I intend to apply to doctorate programs and eventually continue research in industry.
