BS Neuroscience, 2016
I am from Kaysville, Utah and completed by undergraduate degree in Neuroscience at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. I chose to come to the University of Kentucky because of the incredible support from the program and the abundance of mentors to choose from doing research that aligned with my own interests. I am a graduate student in lab of Ai-Ling Lin, PhD studying the gut-brain axis in stroke rehabilitaiton.
