About Me

I am working on my Master's degree in Bioengineering at Santa Clara University. I earned my B.S. in Biochemistry at Christopher Newport University. I am originally from Prague, Czech Republic. Currently, I am searching for an internship position in biotechnology field in San Francisco Bay Area.


I am happily married to David Nguyen who gets paid for being on Facebook all day long (so unfair!). Recently, we welcomed a new member to our family.
