I have 18 years of experience, and specialize in the field of microbiology, clinical laboratory science, and education with specific knowledge in the areas of microbiology, molecular diagnostics and zoonotic disease (e.g. rabies) and MRSA. I have published on such topics as methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), rabies, hantavirus and molecular diagnostics. I’ve been recognized nationally for my expertise in microbiology (rabies and MRSA). I have worked on international public health initiatives (oral rabies vaccination program).
