I began in the transgenic field in 1991 working with Dr. Brigid Hogan. Since joining the core in 1998, as a Research Specialist Senior, I have focused on performing both dna pronuclear and stem cell blastocyst injections. Other key roles in the core are cryopreservation of embryos and sperm as well as in vitro fertilizations and other assisted reproduction techniques.

My hobbies are pretty much anything to deal with my three Poodles. I actively compete with them in dog agility, obedience and rally obedience. I also enjoying spending time with my husband Jerry at our home in Pleasant View.
