Department of Medical Laboratory Science 
Program Director
Assistant Professor

As a practicing medical laboratory scientist for over twenty years, it is my goal to provide students the education that is required to both pass the certification exam, and practice within the profession. During the MS in Medical Laboratory Science program, students will be encouraged to join professional societies, promote health and wellness among peers and community members, and contribute to the profession by upholding values and standards within the medical community.

My commitment to the college, students, and profession involves active engagement in both the curriculum, teaching, and collaborative involvement with medical laboratory community to foster relationships that will enhance the program, offer quality internship opportunities, and produce quality, medical laboratory scientists for the future of the profession.
