Sarah earned her BS in Mathematics with a minor in Biology from Georgetown College in 2004. She began work at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in the DNA Core Facility. There, she completed pharmacogenetic studies from primer design to sequence analysis and processed customer samples for sequencing. Next, she worked at the University of Kentucky where she learned animal handling skills and many laboratory techniques such as immunohistochemistry, ELISA assays, RT-PCR, and microscope imaging. Sarah joined ParaTechs in 2016 as a Research Associate. Her animal handling experience combined with her eagerness to learn new laboratory techniques makes her a great fit at ParaTechs. She enjoys that in scientific research, no two days are the same. She is a member of the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (AALAS). In her down time, she enjoys knitting, spending time with friends, and teaching her cat new tricks.
