I received a Bachelor's in Biology from Mississippi College in the fall of 2011. I then obtained a Master's from Mississippi College in Biology with an emphasis in research in 2013. I wrote a thesis on RNF13 and its interaction with the Arp2/3 complex in murine macrophages. I began working as a research associate for Dr. Trey Howell at Mississippi State University. I was accepted into the DVM/PhD program in 2015, and began my PhD in the June of that year. I will begin my DVM in June of 2017.
