Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center- Shreveport


I completed my Ph.D. in Cellular Biology and Anatomy in the summer of 2017 and immediately transitioned to instructor at the same institution.  I teach human gross anatomy, histology, neuroanatomy, and neuroscience to medical, allied health, and graduate students.  I currently have an interest in neuroscience research, but my goal is to segue into educational research.

As a mentee, I am looking to meet fellow anatomists, future collaborators, and those who can help me with navigating academic life, i.e., career enhancement, developing teaching pedagogy, and transitioning to educational research.

On a personal level, I am married with three little ones.  I enjoy spending time with them, cooking, traveling, and watching movies.

Diversity and Inclusion

The board recently adopted a Diversity and Inclusion Plan and incorporated it into the AAA Strategic Plan. As part of the plan, AAA is working to ensure all members are represented in all its committees, and are supported equally in awards and other opportunities. The detailed information requested below would contribute to a better understanding of the demographic of the AAA members. Each choice is optional, and you may request that particular fields remain hidden in your public profile. Please be aware that all choices completed will be visible to AAA administrative staff. Thank you for helping us meet our goals for AAA diversity and inclusion.
