    Major: Biology and Psychology
    Concentration: Behavioral Neuroscience

    I am a PhD candidate in the Neuroscience Training Program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. When I am not in the lab you can find me visiting family in the Northeast, watching a baseball game or drinking coffee. While I played volleyball at WC, I have since retired.

    Favorite Professor and Classes

    Drs. James Windelborn, Mike Kerchner and George Spilich shaped my neuroscience experiences in Toll. I am immensely grateful. The entirety of the bio department were the most supportive and collaborative in my on campus research and guidance on my next steps.

    Fondest WC Memory

    Hard to choose just one. From late night study sessions with other bio majors, my first day spent working in lab, many "ring the bell" moments. Maybe when faculty said the table I sat at in Toll should have my name on it.

    Let’s Hear It for the Liberal Arts

    WC gave me the opportunity and environment to grow and to be supported as I did. As I moved on I realized how important those moments were and how much they got me ready to be more of my own person in my next role.


    Take advantage of as many opportunities as you can, go to the alum talks they will help you picture what you want next. That being said, take care of yourself, it is hard to be successful when you are burnt out.
