My favorite college memory was learning the basic skills and lab techniques to enable me to further my scientific career. I did a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University after my PhD at UTD. I then began my career in corporate biotechnology in Silicon Valley and have been successful over the past 14 years in my career. The SPE-GCS scholarship was a part of my financial net to allow me to move to College Station and pay for tuition for the first semester. My advice to students is to spend the award wisely and enjoy your time while at the university. Build friendships and take it all in. Contact me at
