I was born on January 12th, in Pasco WA. I grew up in Pasco and
graduated from Pasco High School.
I graduated with a B.S. in Microbiology from WSU in 2007. I started
working with Dr. Rector during my undergrad years, and continued to work as a
facility member for about 3 years after graduation. My research focused on
auditory evoked responses to different intensity stimuli across sleep and wake.
Current research topic:
My research focuses on the auditory evoked electrical and hemodynamic
responses under different intervals of sleep deprivation.
I enjoy all sorts of sports; I particularly enjoy playing disc golf, tennis,
table tennis, and going snowboarding. I love going to football games (especially
when we win), or watching football and hockey at home. I also enjoy cooking,
reading, and napping.
