I am originally from Hermitage, Pennsylvania, a small town located about 90 miles northwest of Pittsburgh. I moved to Pittsburgh in 2002 to complete an internship at Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh to finish my undergraduate degree. I quickly fell in love with the city and began graduate school at Chatham University in 2004. I started working in research at UPMC in 2006 and joined Dr. Levine’s group in 2008. My primary research interests are issues related to women’s health and gender-related studies.
Fun fact: My favorite things to do include cooking with my husband, running, drinking coffee, traveling, and sharing dinner with friends.
