I attended WCU for both my undergrad and graduate degrees where I studied Raman spectroscopy for forensic applications. Upon graduating with my MS, I went into the pharmaceutical industry as an analytical chemist for two years where I was the lead analyst for our GMP products/APIs. I left the lab to join Warren Wilson College as their Lab Manager/Instrumentation Specialist where I stayed for three years before joining WCU.
