Brief Biographical Sketch:

Originally from Cupertino, CA , I made the long trek to Stanford for undergrad and I graduated in 2006 in Biology and Psychology and then completed my Masters at Stanford in Biology in 2007. Throughout my time at the Farm, I have been working at the Stanford Sleep Center with Dr. William Dement. My primary focus has been studying sleep and specifically how athletes can improve their athletic performance by focusing on their sleeping habits as an important part of their training regimen.

In my free time, I love dancing, the Game, snowboarding, black and white photography, traveling, puzzles, and rockclimbing. Oh and I love to sleep!!!
