Educational Background

VP Operations & Youth Program Director at TheLab

In 2015 I took on the position of VP Operations at TheLab and a seat as one of the Board Members.  In these roles my goal is to assist TheLab as it expands into a larger community with more resources and more members.  The success of the youth scientist programs is a primary interest of mine.

I am here to assist you with anything you may need to get the resources you need for a successful project at TheLab.
