Senior Vivarium Manager
Q: What’s your favorite fun fact?
A: Did you know a rat can tread water for up to 3 days, and hold its breath underwater for 3 minutes?! That's how they can climb up your toilet.
Q: What excites you about science?
A: There are no mistakes in science, just temporary setbacks. Every misstep teaches you something that will help you succeed in the future.
Q: What do you do in your free time?
A: During the summer, I'm at the beach every waking moment that I'm not here at Abveris. In the colder months I'm at home knitting or painting. I'm also back in school for my Veterinary Nursing degree through Purdue's College of Veterinary Medicine, so that takes up a good chunk of time.
Q: What is your favorite memory of working at Abveris?
A: This is a really tough question! I feel like I do a lot of laughing here. Everyone is jokester, and they all enjoy taking a few moments out of their day to mess with each other. So I think all of my favorite memories are of pranks or someone jumping out to try and scare you. Or Brian singing about his chicken sandwich all day...
