"What the pandemic taught her about inclusion"
Carolyn is research scientist at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. She is dedicated to understanding how small molecular changes in the brain lead to symptoms in patients with neurological disease. Her favorite activities include exploring Texas waters on her kayak, rock climbing, doing yoga, getting lost in a book and hiking the National Parks with her husband.
Carolyn progressively lost her hearing over the course of her scientific training. In 2019, she received bilateral cochlear implants and rediscovered the world of sound. She finds fulfillment in using her experiences to create a more inclusive scientific research enterprise. She also enjoys serving as a patient liaison at the Center for Hearing and Balance at Baylor College of Medicine where she supports others through their hearing loss journey and the cochlear implant process.
