I am a recent graduate from Juniata College in Huntingdon, PA. I graduated with a BS in Biology and a minor in Spanish. During my four years at Juniata, I held a number of leadership roles such as Vice President of Spanish Club and was a Bonner leader during my sophomore year. I also studied abroad twice: once between my freshman and sophomore year in Orizaba, Mexico and a second time during my junior year in Quito, Ecuador. I became fluent in Spanish during these immersion programs and fine-tuned aspects of grammar in Spanish classes. Due to my expertise, I was selected to be a Spanish II lab leader during my senior year and tutored four students in Spanish I and II. I also had the opportunity to do yeast genetics research while at Juniata during my senior year. This project really allowed me to experiment on my own and helped me with problem solving and troubleshooting protocols. While my academic pursuits were extremely interesting and engaging, I also try to achieve a balance between life and work. I am an avid mountain biker, fly fisherman, and when I am at the beach, I absolutely love to surf. Through this balance of work and play, I manage to remain very relaxed and easily approachable.
