    As a Research Services Coordinator, I help faculty target funding mechanisms, prepare and submit proposals, develop budgets, and interpret sponsor guidelines and requirements. I am well-versed in preparing and managing proposals for both federal and private non-profit sponsors. I also manage awarded grants by preparing progress reports and communicating milestones achieved to the sponsor. I work with the the Ob/Gyn Bixby Center for Reproductive Health and the Pediatric-Endocrinology Division. I am passionate about playing a role in securing funding for life-saving research in the fields of HIV/AIDS, women's health, diabetes, and obesity.

    Prior to joining UCSF, I was a neuroscientist at Yale University. My doctoral dissertation focused on the role of the amygdala in processing social and emotional signals. I gained pre-award experience at Yale University by preparing and submitting research grants to the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health. I received my bachelors degrees from the University of Florida in Psychology and English.
