I graduated from West Chester University in 2012 with a B.S. in Biology. For the past four years, I have studied at New York University College of Dentistry (NYUCD) and will be graduating in May 2016 as valedictorian of my class, becoming a Doctor of Dental Surgery. I will continue my dental education starting July 2016 at Columbia University College of Dental Medicine to complete a residency in Orthodontics. While at West Chester University, I performed research with Dr. Woodruff, working with Drosophila melanogaster oocytes. Starting research at West Chester University served as the impetus that directed me down a path of research at NYUCD with CTOR (Consortium for Translational Orthodontic Research). With CTOR, I examined maxillary expansion in rats, a topic that I presented at various conventions and organizations across the country. My research and education at West Chester University provided me with the foundation for what I have achieved to date, and what I will continue to achieve in the future.
