Young woman with long hair against a professional blue background

Jenny graduated in 2019 with a major in Chemical and Biological Engineering. She is originally from Goleta, California but moved to Boulder, Colorado as a kid. In her free time, she enjoys reading, playing video games, and generally being a massive nerd. Jenny spent two summers as a lab assistant in an ovarian cancer lab at the Anschutz Medical Campus. That experience made her realize that she could apply her engineering background to develop novel medicines and treatment options. She is especially interested in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Jenny hopes to pursue a doctoral degree in bioengineering in order to make a difference in the lives of patients.

Jenny's McNair Scholars mentor was Kelsie Anson. Her faculty advisor was Dr. Benjamin Bitler, who is a professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at CU Denver.
