About Me

I joined CNEL in January 2006 as Research Coordinator, reporting to Dr. Principe. I am responsible for grant proposal and budget development, maintaining the lab, helping our CNEL students and visiting scholars, technical writing/editing, the CNEL newsletter and website, and all of those things that fall under ”other duties as assigned.” Before joining CNEL, I spent a year at UF’s Center of Excellence for Regenerative Health Biotechnology as Administrative Coordinator. Previously, I was a research coordinator with the U.S. Department of Energy, program coordinator for international agriculture at the University of Georgia, and administrator for the Vaccine Center at Emory University in Atlanta.

I have an M.S. and a B.S. from the University of Georgia, and was a 1997 Fulbright grantee.

Back in the day, I was an exercise rider for Thoroughbred racehorses, including 1990 Preakness Stakes winner, Summer Squall.

I grew up a life-long Atlanta Braves fan in Georgia, and, after 3 years in Florida, I�m finally getting used to all this orange. After all, I married a Gator. My husband, Keith Ingram, is a research scientist in Biological and Agricultural Engineering, and is Coordinator for the Southeastern Climate Consortium. My son, Josh Stewart, is an honor student at P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School, and an awesome athlete. In addition to scoring >95th percentile in math on the 2006 and 2007 FCAT, Josh is the starting second baseman for the Blue Wave varsity team. He is also a middle infielder for the Florida Hardballers summer team.
My Research Interests

My master’s research dealt with the role of methanogens in the ruminal microbial ecosystem. Methanogens are cool! They are an integral part of the amazing process by which ruminanat aminals like cattle, sheep, goats, and deer turn grass into body tissues and milk.
