Employment:
1. Research Assistant. Warren Wilson College/University of Florida 2001 – 2003.
Altered secondary sexual characteristics in American Alligators related to Estrogen mimicking Compounds in the Environment. Researched abnormal hormone metabolism and associated alterations in secondary sexual characteristics in American alligators resulting from exposure to estrogen mimicking compounds in the environment. Participated in a collaborative study with the University of Florida studying American Alligators in Lake Orange and Lake Apopka. Field work included collection of blood and urine specimens and assessment of secondary sexual characteristics. Bench work involved processing samples and analyzing and quantifying using Gas Chromatography - Mass Spectrometry.

2. Research and Development, Genetic Assays, Inc., 2004
Assisted in development of patented TEER technology, specifically with transition to a real-time quantitative PCR application. Also assisted in developing a clinical transplant assay testing for BK virus, Adenovirus, and Cytomegalovirus using a real-time PCR platform.

3. Clinical Research Assistant, Division of Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism, Vanderbilt University 2005.
Assisted in glucose clamp and microneurography studies. Oversaw preparation for research studies, operation of equipment, monitoring plasma glucose levels, and collecting and analyzing blood samples for the presence of various hormones.
