Biography:  I received my Bachelors of Science in Biology from Black Hills State University.  While receiving my degree, I worked in CCBR/WestCore for three years. Upon completing my degree, I was hired full time. I have worked as a full time research associate since May of 2006. I currently work with undergraduate and graduate students, teaching molecular techniques commonly used in our lab including DNA extraction procedures, PCR techniques,  DNA sequencing and fragment analysis.  I assist with community outreach and work with the other lab faculty and staff in facilitating learning exercises for elementary, junior high and high school students. I work on grant funded projects as the need arises, and  I am the  sole Wildlife Forensics Examiner/Analyst for CCBR/WestCore. In addition to the Wildlife Forensics program, I also work extensively with other fee for service projects including Bison hybridity testing, microbial diversity analysis, etc..
