I have served as Dr. Lozoff's lab coordinator since 2002. In this capacity, I supervise undergraduate and graduate students in their research training, help draft and edit manuscripts and grants, maintain project documentation, and oversee submissions to ClinicalTrials.gov, IRBMED, and the NIH manuscript submission portal.
I received my A.B. from Duke University and my M.A. from the University of British Columbia. I was a J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholar to Canada in 1994-5 where I studied the differences between the child care systems in Canada and the U.S.
