I am very excited to be starting as a member of the long term follow-up core team. I have a B.A. in Liberal Studies with concentrations in Biology, Psychology and Health and Medical Issues. In addition to my current positon within the CRISMA Center, I also work for the Pittsburgh Girls Study (a longitudinal study of 16 years). I have been working there for the past 6 years and thoroughly enjoy working on this project. Besides my work life, I am married, have 2 teenage boys and have another 9 year old boy. All three of my boys are involved in sports throughout the whole year, so I am constantly on the run! To add to the tempo, I am also the Secretary for the wrestling organization. I would not have my life any other way…crazy fun!
