My undergraduate training was at Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon where I focused primarily on Psychology/Neuroscience.  I then went to Western Illinois University for my Masters degree in Experimental Psychology, where I explored attentional deficits in rats consuming high-fat diets, and potential reversible mechanisms with modern antipsychotic drugs.  I recently completed my Ph.D. in experimental psychology at Washington State University.  My main area of interest was sex differences in the analgesic and rewarding effects of morphine using a chronic inflammatory pain model.  At UNE, I plan to continue to explore sex differences with stress-related factors, but focus on cellular/molecular techniques and try to incorportate sex differences into understanding early-life pain, and later-life stress and fear responses.
