    BioI received my B.S. in Chemistry from Mary Baldwin University in 1998. In 2004, I obtained my Ph.D. from the University of Rochester in Toxicology. Originally from the East Coast, I sought out sunny California and became a toxicologist at Genentech and Gilead Sciences. In 2007, I changed careers and moved to Stanford to follow my passion for increasing diversity in STEM.
