I currently serve as Associate Undergraduate Program Director, collaborating with the Program Director in Student Affairs, Education and Curriculum, and Admissions as well as teaching the courses MEDT 321 Introduction to Laboratory Techniques and MEDT 491 Clinical Immunology.

My experience of having worked in a small community hospital, a large reference laboratory, and a physician’s clinic prior to my arrival at UMB in 2001 shapes my approach to training students to work in a variety of settings.

I have specific interests in both clinical immunology and microbiology.
