Professional Background

Residency:  Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Kansas City Medical Center. June 2017 - Present.

I received my B.A. in psychology from Bethel College in May of 2008.  My past research experience includes work at Mount Sinai Medical School New York, NY and Bethel College-North Newton, KS.  At Mount Sinai, I studied HIV infection in Dr. Mary Klotman and Dr. Viviana Simon's labs. In Dr. Klotman's lab, I studied the importance of cervical epithelial and endothelial cells in the HIV infection of CD4+ T cells.  In Dr. Simon's lab, I studied the relationship between defects in the APOBEC3 family of DNA editing enzymes, some of which have been shown to have anti-HIV activity, and the progression of HIV infection.  At Bethel College, I worked in Dr. Paul Lewis' lab studying the importance of perspective in how medical professionals and patients understand and think about issues related to medication adherence.   

Mentor: Peggy Petroff, Ph.D., Anatomy and Cell Biology.
