I was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, and moved to Alpharetta, Georgia at a young age, eventually moving back to Central Arkansas. There, I attended the University of Central Arkansas in Conway, Arkansas and received my B.S. in Biology in 2012. I subsequently attended the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences until 2017, when I received my Ph.D. in microbiology and immunology.
