I received my B.S. from Centenary College of Louisiana in Biology and Neuroscience, and I am currently pursuing an M.D./Ph.D. at Louisiana Health Sciences Center working in the laboratories of Dr. Gilpin and Dr. Patricia Molina.

My current research focuses on traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post-TBI behavioral deficits. Specifically, I am investigating the contribution of endocannabinoid system dysregulation to escalation of alcohol self-administration.

Outside of the lab, I enjoy gardening, cooking, and spending time with friends.
