Pharmacy School student, The University of Texas College of Pharmacy

Background:
I am currently working on my PharmD degree at the University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy. I am originally from Rockwall, Texas. In my spare time I like to read, relax and enjoy life. I am looking forward to doing rotations in a clinical pharmacy setting, where I hope to learn more about oncology, neonatology, and how pharmacists affect clinical outcomes.

Research:
My Honors Project consists of documenting the expression of membrane ER-alpha receptors on the median eminence of the rat brain. Currently I am working with enzymatic DAB immunochemistry in order to test and optimize 3 different antibodies specific to this receptor. In the future, I hope to determine if membrane ER-alpha receptors are co-localized with GnRH receptors on the median eminence of the rat brain.
