Biography Information
Howdy! I am a Texas girl who has lived throughout much of the south growing up. I graduate from Texas A&M (Whoop!) and following in my grandfather's foot steps attended medical school at LSUHSC - New Orleans. As if I didn't love school enough, I also got my PhD in microbiology as a dual degree candidate. It worked out to my advantage as I met my husband while in graduate school.
