Personal Interests: 

When I'm not at the lab or on campus I'm running around on local trails or cooking up some new recipes in my kitchen. 


I earned my B.S. in Chemistry at The College of New Jersey and am extremely proud to call NJ my original home. I spent some time working in environmental consulting prior to accepting my position at the OSU Seafood Lab so I come from a pretty diverse scientific background. I have a wide breadth of experiences including quality assurance/quality control, laboratory management and auditing, organic extractions, programming, analytical chemistry and environmental remediation.
