Three things people may not know about you.

  • I spent a semester working at Ross Medical School down in Dominica. While I was there I adopted a puppy named Stella. Four flights, two days, and three countries later, she is now a proud Nebraskan :)
  • I was a History major in undergrad -- and it really showed during my biochem core!
  • I am terrified of sharks and, consequently, know way more about them than any non-marine biologist should.
