Ms. Gaspard earned her bachelor's degree in biomedical engineering at the University of Miami in Miami, Fla., before landing at Carnegie Mellon in August 2004 to pursue a graduate degree in biomedical engineering, and to continue her pursuit of the design and development of novel medical devices and instruments that can improve patient care.
