Hello! I'm Heather and the Student/Postdoc Board of Directors Member for AAA (2017-2020). I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California, San Francisco in Ralph Marcucio's lab. My research focuses on developmental biology and orthopaedics. I'm passionate about using my experiences and time to advance people in any way I can, and ensuring that science is equitable for all. 

Outside of science, I love being outdoors with my husband and dog (my horse is patiently waiting at my parents for me to get a real job :D ). We love camping, traveling and hiking all over the world.
