Born and raised in Oregon, I am a locally grown Ph.D. student having worked at OHSU since 2003. I live on a walnut and filbert (hazelnut) farm with my husband, dog and cat. During harvest, I perform green sample testing and quality control of the nuts delivered to our processing facility. I also enjoy creating recipes incorporating our never-ending supply of nuts. To decompress, I enjoy running my dog, partaking in the occasional race, and swimming. To round out my free time, I find pleasure in reading (most anything!), traveling (most anywhere!) and attempting to garden.
