I am originally from Durham, North Carolina. I received a B.S. in Environmental Health, along with a minor in Criminal Justice, from Western Carolina University. I am currently pursuing a M.S. in Industrial Hygiene at the University of Iowa. Areas of potential research include indoor air quality and bioaerosols. Upon receiving my Master’s degree, I plan on seeking CIH and CSP certifications. It is my goal to one day work as an industrial hygienist in the Navy or for the U.S. Public Health Service.
