Personal Statement

My deep dive into peptide science began with an opportunity to join the laboratory of former APS President Dr. Jane V. Aldrich. It was during my tenure as a graduate student in Jane’s lab when I had my first exposure to APS, the 2007 meeting in Montreal, Québec. The remarkable presentations and scientific discussions were inspiring. I was then and remain now, moved by the welcoming nature of the peptide community. Since that meeting, I have taken numerous opportunities to participate in the symposium and the society.

It has been exhilarating to work with students and professionals on SAC both as a student and as a professional. Helping to raise funds for the symposium, a worthwhile but hefty task, has brought me closer to our members across so many different areas of research, backgrounds, and segments.

Promoting the value of membership in our community is my passion. I am seeking the role of councilor to further immerse myself in the society and drive continued exploration of value and member engagement.
