My name is Nicole Breese and I was born and raised in Solon, Iowa. I graduated from Concordia University Nebraska with a B.S. in biology and chemistry. While at Concordia, I worked as a laboratory assistant for the genetics and human anatomy and physiology courses.
I became interested in human toxicology as I found it to be the perfect intersection of biology and chemistry. I chose the University of Iowa in part so I can become the third generation of females to graduate with advanced degrees from the university, as well as the program’s interdisciplinary nature.
I love to compete in the shotgun sports and in my free time I enjoy spending time outdoors and reading a good book.
