The six months between graduating from Emory with my doctorate in neuroscience and launching Nerv at CVS locations nationwide has been an amazing journey. I was surprised and deeply honored when the Emory Alumni office reached out to me to me just 4 months after graduation to highlight my work in their inaugural Alumni Spotlight series. 

It was a pleasure to work with Jerald Butler to highlight some of my recent experience as an alumnus to help provide current and prospective students with ideas and inspiration for various career paths.
