Graduating Class of 2003
"After graduating from Trinity Christian Academy in 2003, I attended Florida Atlantic University for my undergraduate studies. I received my bachelor's degree in Psychology in 2007, while also completing the requirements to graduate with Honors designation. As a part of this, I authored an Honors Thesis under the guidance of Dr. Robert Stackman on research assessing rodent learning and memory behavior. In the fall of 2009, I was recruited to the Interdisciplinary Program in Biomedical Science at the University of Florida. The exciting line of research being conducted in the laboratory of Dr. Thomas Foster prompted me to join. My dissertation work focused on accessing the role of the prefrontal cortex in higher-level cognitive functions and how these executive domains decline with age. In the fall of 2014, I completed my graduate coursework and received my doctoral degree from UF. I currently work for Noldus Information Technology in Leesburg, VA. As an account manager for Noldus, I aide other scientific researchers and ensure they have the proper tools and testing protocols in place for their investigations. Looking back on my time at Trinity, I am filled with the fond memories my classmates and I shared. It was at Trinity that the foundations for who I am today (both academically and personally) were laid."
