    Ashley Augustine

    Sarah graduated from Vanderbilt with a major in Medicine, Health, and Society. She stayed in the lab as a research assistant for one year, then returned for a mentored research experience under Dr. Woynaroski before her second year of medical school. She is currently a medical student at the University of Georgia. Her research looked at sensory processing in infants at high- and low-risk for ASD.
