As an undergraduate at UCLA, my research experience comprised of studying preclinical therapies for neurodegenerative diseases.  Years later, I still want to understand the human brain better and enjoy laboratory research. Born, raised, and having studied in Los Angeles until now, I consider my graduate education with the Behavioral Neuroscience Department at OHSU my newest adventure in the pursuit for answers.

In my free time, I love being crafty, whether it’s in the kitchen with a skillet or behind a sewing machine with fabric.  I unashamedly adore comedy television, fantasy novels, and animated films because everything is awesome.
