As a child, my father was in the military so I live all over.  I now call Prairie Village, KS home.  I attended Valparaiso University where I received a BS degree in Chemistry.  After college, I worked for an environmental testing company for several years before returning to graduate school at the University of Kansas.  At KUMC I received a MS in Molecular Biotechnology.  I chose to pursue my PhD in Toxicology under the guidance of Udayan Apte PhD. In my free time I enjoy playing golf and watching sports with my friends, as well as walking my dogs. 


I have many research interests, but my main one is liver regeneration.  The liver has a remarkable ability to regenerate after insult or resection.  The ability to regenerate is the most important factor in final outcome in drug induced liver failure as well as post-transplant survival and cancer pathogenesis.  I am currently investigating the role of nuclear receptor HNF4alpha in liver regeneration.
