Carrie joined the McKay Orthopedic Research Laboratory in the fall of 2014 and is currently working on understanding the pathogenesis of pre-term birth (PTB) with a focus on premature cervical remodeling. In her spare time, she likes to watch Netflix, bike, run, and play with her part time Boston Terrier, Beans.
