With degrees in Zoology and Biological Anthropology, her original profession was in Molecular Biology and Forensic Science. Working on a range of projects from research to forensic identification in various military facilities utilizing the then new mtDNA mapping, she has had extensive scientific experience and base knowledge which aids in communicating with FASEB’s diverse client societies.
