After receiving my Bachelor's degree in Chemistry from the University of Maine, where my research was focused on analytical instrumentation, I switched gears to work as a Research Assistant for Dr. Steve Murray in Genetic Resource Science (GRS). My focus at that time was developing, and later managing, the Jackson Laboratory's Cre Characterization Resource.

Following a several-year "sabbatical" from GRS, I once again work for Dr. Murray. Primarily, I work on characterizing novel mouse mutants, with a focus on better understanding craniofacial developmental disorders.
