Career Path: 

I have worked in the pharmaceutical industry for the past 8 years. I have worked for companies such as Johnson and Johnson and Procter and Gamble. I've worked in the manufacturing field, as well as research and development. I've traveled to Ohio and Maryland, working in small companies in both states. Currently I am a Chemist for NAMSA in Irvine, CA. We do testing on medical devices, and work closely with our clients to make sure the medical devices they've made conform to American, European, and Asian government guidelines.

Personal Interests: 
In my free time, I enjoy reading, working out, hiking, and cooking (we all know that chemistry is like baking, just don't lick the spoon!)
Type of Students: 
I would like to work with students that are interested in going into the working industry right from college. I have a lot of contacts with the companies I've worked for, and I think I can help motivate and guide students in their professional careers.
