"Welcomed a second girl, Eliana Lilly, into the family on January 30, 2010. She joins big sister Maya, now 8. I'm in my 19th year as a Biostatistician with the EMMES Corporation. I currently work on the Age-Related Eye Disease Study 2 the National NeuroAids Tissue Consortium and a special project with the FDA, in addition to helping develop other new studies. I recently co-authored a publication in Opthalmology looking at the association between c-reactive protein and certain genetic variants on the prevalence of age-related macular generation. For about a decade I taught novice programmers at my company to use SAS to improve their work efficiency. I am finishing my second year taking classes at the George Washington University towards earning my PhD."
