I am a 2022 graduate of Augusta University’s Medical Illustration graduate program. I grew up in coastal North Carolina, where my passion for art and science led me to study biology with a minor in studio art at UNC Wilmington.

It wasn’t until after completing my undergraduate degree, when I went on to work in a molecular biology lab at UNC Chapel Hill, that I discovered the field of medical illustration. I recognized a need for a skilled illustrator to help convey the complex findings that were being developed in the lab. With my background in art and science, I couldn’t imagine a better fit for my career.

At MIGP, I worked on fine-tuning my skills as an illustrator and animator, deepening my knowledge and understanding of the human body, and improving my visual communication abilities.

Currently, I am working in the medical-legal field, creating visual exhibits to assist the jury in understanding medical malpractice cases. I continue to take on freelance jobs outside of the legal realm, and enjoy experimenting with different styles and techniques.

I look forward to a long career creating compelling and sophisticated visual aids to help better communicate concepts in the medical field.
