Biography: 

Like so many FairmontState students I too grew up in a small West Virginia town. I have received two degrees from FairmontState. The first is an Associate degree in Veterinary Technology in 2000 and the second, a Bachelor Degree in Biology in 2005. I have been working in Dr. Mark Flood’s research lab since graduation. This year I will be continuing this work as a full-time staff member of FSU. The research program is funded by a WVINBRE grant awarded to Dr. Mark Flood. Although meticulous, I love the research that we are completing. I also enjoy maintaining a beautiful flower garden, my dogs, and my friends at FairmontState.

What have you learned during your time at Fairmont State?: 

Among the various challenges and trials that are accompanied with operating a lab, I look forward to learning how our research may impact cardiovascular disease.

What do you like best about working at Fairmont State?: 

I appreciate the opportunity to be able to work with colleagues that were also fellow students during the time I finished my B.S. degree at Fairmont State. I am also grateful for the chance to work with my mentor and friend Dr. Mark Flood.
