Angelina graduated from Michigan State University in 2020 with a BS in Molecular Genetics and Genomics and a minor in Biotechnology. As an undergrad, Angelina gained advocacy experience with the Sexual Assault Crisis Intervention team to staff a crisis line for survivors of sexual assault. She also volunteered in the childcare program at EVE, a women’s shelter for survivors of domestic violence. Angelina worked as a research assistant in a genetic biology lab at the MSU Electric Fish Lab, studying the genetic basis for the voltage output found in electric fish. She also worked as a research assistant with the MSU Prenatal Stress Study, the MSU branch of a multi-institutional study focused on studying the impact of domestic violence during pregnancy. Angelina gained insight into the genetic counseling profession by spending time at the MSU Cystic Fibrosis clinic working as an assistant to the genetic counselor there.  In her free time, Angelina loves seeing live music with friends, cross-stitching, and hanging out with her cat, Taika.
