I am a Cal grad (BA) and cancer epidemiologist (PhD, UCLA) and spent many years doing cancer epidemiology research. I currently do medical research consulting for start up biotech firms and I am a freshman-application reader for UC Berkeley. I periodically travel to Berkeley for meetings. I also advise HS and college students on careers in the sciences. I met my husband (PEIS major) at Cal. We live in San Marino (southern California) and have 3 children - the oldest is a student at Cal. We also have 2 dogs and 2 cats, and I love to read.
