In Her Words

“It’s a huge honor to be acknowledged by your undergrad institution. I’m excited to use the platform to encourage other hopeful young physician-scientists, because Auburn has an extraordinary college of science and math that prepares you with a good foundation for future success.

With Auburn, it felt like a community—they wanted you to succeed and they had the resources available, all you have to do is ask and they’d give you all the advice you’d need. Dr. Larry Wit, the former Dean of CoSAM, I still talk to him today; I graduated in 2004, and to have somebody of that magnitude still in your corner over a decade after you graduate is absolutely huge. It really speaks to what a wonderful experience Auburn is.”
