I manage a lab in the McArdle Laboratory for Cancer Research where we investigate the intersection of environmental and genetic risk factors for breast cancer. I have held research support positions at the University of Wisconsin for over 20 years, including experiences in CALS, L&S and SMPH. I am passionate about training and sharing learning experiences with the students, colleagues and investigators I support. I am grateful to the founders of the Lab Manager Community of Practice for answering a clear need within the UW community. I’m an avid cyclist with particular enthusiasm for the sport of cyclocross.
