I joined the USGS-National Wildlife Health Center as a wildlife disease specialist/field epidemiologist in 2008. I earned my DVM at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville and a PhD in Comparative Medicine-Population Health at North Carolina State University (Raleigh). I’m actively involved in research and multi-agency coordination for bat white-nose syndrome (WNS) and currently serve as the lead for the WNS Diagnostic Working Group as well as on the WNS National Coordination Team.
