I started my science career working in quality control at Harlan Spraque Dawley vaccine division in 1984. I moved to a research lab at the University of WI in 1987 working with Dr. James Rand in neurotransmitter research. From there I moved to Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation continuing this work. In 2009 I moved, within the Foundation, to the labs of Dr. Patrick Gaffney and Dr. Kathy Sivils. I serve the role of Laboratory Manager for these 2 labs.
