I have a Master’s degree in Women’s and Gender studies and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Women’s Studies. I have worked in human subject research for over 13 years in Canada and the United States. In Vancouver, Canada, I was a Research Assistant at the WHRI where I worked on women’s health research. When I moved to Colorado, I was accepted as a Senior Clinical Research Coordinator in Otolaryngology. I became a working supervisor for the researchers who worked at UCHealth and Children’s Hospital of Colorado. In this position I was a researcher on studies and a leader of the research department. Currently, I oversee 3 UCHealth and 3 Children’s Hospital of Colorado CRC’s and their projects.

I have a bachelor’s degree in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences from CU-boulder. I graduated from CU in 2017 and have spent the last several years working as an audiology technician. I have worked in the private practice setting, as well as most recently being a technician at the UCHealth audiology clinic here in Aurora. Outside of work, I am a total dog mom to my St. Bernard and spend most weekends doing videography with my fiancé.
I have been blessed to have had a non-traditional pharmacist career. From working for a software startup to the Board of Pharmacy in California and most recently building Epic EMR for hospitals. I've always had my heart set on working on the research and clinical trials side of drug development so I'm thrilled to join the team. In my free time I enjoy discovering new hiking paths in Colorado and making things pretty with my calligraphy art skills.
I started work as a Clinical Research Coordinator at the Dept of Otolaryngology on May 22, 2023. Originally from Nebraska, I moved to Colorado in 2014 to attend CU Boulder, where I obtained my BA in Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences and an SLP-A Certificate. After graduating, I conducted in-home behavior therapy and early intervention speech therapy until I made my way back to Audiology. I started as an Audiology Technician with UCH-A in 2020, then advanced to Project Coordinator in 2022. I live near Longmont with my husband and two wonderful dogs and I enjoy gardening, thrifting, baking, and cooking.

I hold a Bachelor's in Biology with a minor in Spanish Language from Loyola University New Orleans and I have worked in clinical medicine in New Orleans' public hospital systems for several years. I loved working in the Tulane University Medical Center Head and Neck Cancer Clinic; my experiences here have led me to pursue research in the field of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. I am thrilled to be conducting clinical research in a field I am passionate about. Outside of research, I enjoy collecting vintage watches, reading, and exploring Colorado's great outdoors.
I was born and raised in Colorado having spent most of my life in Aurora where I went to school and graduated from the Community College of Aurora. I joined the University of Colorado Hospital in 2012 and spent the last ten years as the coordinator for the cochlear implant program at the UCH Department of Audiology. I enjoy travel and golfing when outside of the office.
I am from Houston Texas and graduated from Texas A&M in May 2021 with a BA in biology and a minor in business. I've worked a variety of jobs growing up from Smoothie King to 1-800-GotJunk to performing translational oral cancer research, and I am excited to now be in a clinical research position. In my free time, I enjoy working out and playing with my cat and I hope to get into hiking soon!
