I was born and raised in Southern California. As an undergraduate, I studied English. After college I did some substitute teaching but eventually decided to return to school to study science. After completing a Masters degree in chemistry I worked at a small pharmaceutical company in Pasadena making MRI contrast agents. When the company moved to San Diego, I entered the graduate program at UCLA where I joined the Stoddart Group. I worked on the functionalization of mesoporous silica nanoparticles for targeted drug delivery. I completed my research and degree requirements in February of 2010.
