Biographical Sketch

I joined the ISU Department of Biological Sciences in 1997. I am a biochemist and my specialty is clinical chemistry. I teach biology, IDEP, PHARMD, and Medical Lab Science (MLS) students. Over the years, I’ve taught didactic courses and labs in biochemistry, cell & molecular biology, physiology, endocrinology, histology, and developmental biology. I am certified by the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) as a medical laboratory scientist. As a med tech, I worked at Bingham Memorial Hospital in Blackfoot, ID. I am a generalist, and I work in all areas of the clinical laboratory including clinical chemistry, transfusion medicine, microbiology, hematology, and urinalysis.
