Educational Background

  • 2015, B.S., St. Mary's University, San Antonio, TX


During my undergraduate studies I worked in a neural-toxicology program where I became interested in drug use. In December 2015, I became a member of Dr. Rick Dobrowsky’s lab in the Pharmacology and Toxicology Department at the University of Kansas. Research in our lab focuses on diabetic peripheral neuropathy; these tested treatments could improve the quality of life of diabetic patients.
