My research investigated the regulatory role of activated macrophages in the process of cervical remodeling in pregnant mice. Prior to attending LLU, I attended La Sierra University and graduated with a BS in accounting and a BA in biology in 1998. I decided to join the anatomy department because it provided a curriculum that emphasized a comprehensive study of human anatomy and encouraged student research projects. I have thoroughly enjoyed my program and the teachers are accessible and eager to help students at any time.
Completed MS in anatomy, 2001
