As a fairly new member of the LDS church, I am grateful to have the restored gospel in my life, with a strong and growing testimony.
I am finishing my Ph.D research in the specification and lineage commitment of cells in early development. I enjoy reading about science, personal growth and development, and scriptures. I feel blessed with a heart for service, always looking for ways to contribute to those around me. I am a conscientious, inclusive, adventurous, enthusiastic, patient, committed and loving person.
I work hard, but I also play hard! I am an avid traveler, enthusiastic about experiencing and learning as much I as can about this world and its people. I enjoy photography and road trips with family and friends.
I enjoy things of simple beauty; incredible friendships, the natural beauty of the outdoors, watching birds in flight, visiting Cloud Gate, and collecting vintage cameras.
