California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, CA Bachelor of Science, Electrical Engineering September 1982, Graduated with honors California State University, Long Beach

Master of Science in Kinesiology, Exercise Science Option May 1998, Graduated with Honors University of California, Berkeley

Doctor of Philosophy, Department of Integrative Biology May 2004 Dissertation Title: Monocarboxylate Transporter 1 (MCT1) expression in health and Type 1 diabetes. The research began with confirmation of methodologies and findings of MCT1 in the mitochondrion of rat striated muscle. With these findings, I was able to evaluate the effects of Type 1 diabetes (IDDM) on the expression of MCT1 in cellular and mitochondrial membranes of rat striated muscle and in the erythrocyte.
