I graduated from the University of Puget Sound in 2018 with a B.S. in Biochemistry and minors in Mathematics and Music. During my time at Puget Sound I worked with Dr. Bryan Thines to study the regulatory role of Arabidopsis F-box proteins in abiotic stress response. I was born and raised in Southeast Alaska playing trombone, attending arts camps, and championing state pantomime competitions – an upbringing that left me with a thorough appreciation for a steep hike, a passion for science and medicine, and an unreasonable fear of the sun.
