I am originally from the small town of Willow in Arkansas. I moved to Nashville, Tennessee, to attend Vanderbilt University where I earned a Bachelor's of Engineering in Biomedical Engineering. After college, I worked full-time in the Knapik Laboratory at Vanderbilt University Medical Center studying a rare musculoskeletal disorder called cranio-lenticulo-sutural dysplasia. When I'm not holding a pipette, I can usually be found drinking coffee, playing with my two cats, or writing poetry.
