I grew up in Northern Kentucky and attended Northern Kentucky University as an undergraduate student. During this time, I worked at the Wood Hudson Cancer Research Laboratory with Dr. Bonnie Richmond and later in the lab of Dr. Patrick Schultheis at Northern Kentucky University. I graduated with two BS degrees in 2007 (in Biological Sciences and Chemistry). My PhD training was with Todd Graham at Vanderbilt University where I worked on mechanics of phospholipid "flippases", graduating in 2013. I completed my postdoctoral training with Tom Rapoport at Harvard Medical School in 2017, working on mechanics of the the endoplasmic reticulum associated degradation system (ERAD). I started my lab at the University of Michigan Medical School in September 2017.
