I am a veterinarian seeking to advance our understanding of cardiovascular disorders. I received my BS at Texas A&M in 2008, followed by a DVM at the University of Illinois in 2012. Several years of practice as an emergency and critical care clinician at a large specialty practice showed me there is a huge demand for ever-increasing quality of care and effective therapies for companion animals. Stem cells offer a unique way to address this demand through better through disease modeling, regenerative therapies, and the development of individualized treatment plans. My goal is to utilize stem cells as a way to understand how the cardiovascular system responds to events such as chemotherapy in order to better understand how to manage and avoid the cardiovascular complications which frequently arise during treatment. While I have a veterinary background, I hope that my research will translate to augmentation and increased safety of cancer therapy in both humans and animals.
