Research Program Assistant
I am a woman with a huge heart. I was fortunate to grow up with a very loving family. Although my father died when I was 2 years old, I was showered with more than enough love from my mother, grandparents, uncles and their wives. I only have 2 sons. I would have loved more children. I believe my job with JHU makes up for that. I love knowing the fact that at the end of the day I am a part of something huge and important that will make all babies healthier and safer.
