Hello! My name is Alexis Lello. I was born and raised in the south suburbs of Chicago, IL. I graduated from the University of Illinois with a Bachelor’s in Animal Science with a concentration in pre-veterinary, medical, and sciences. As an undergraduate student, I was a research assistant in the Human Science and Nutrition laboratory working with piglets. I loved dissection days and grew a passion for the laboratory. After researching different graduate programs, I came across the description of a pathologists' assistant and knew that is what I wanted to become. My journey led me to shadowing pathologist' assistants at different hospitals in the Chicago area and continuing my education by learning about the human anatomy and physiology. I am thrilled to be here at Tulane University and cannot wait to experience some of the opportunities that this program has to offer!
