She enjoys constantly learning as a medical student and looks forward to when she will be able to practice and apply what she is learning.

How has your participation in the Bioscience Program had an impact on your career? Firstly, the Bioscience Undergraduate Research Program gave me a great community with life long friends and mentors. In addition, I learned valuable skills such as presenting and speaking in front of groups, being involved in hypothesis-driven research, and the ability to read and comprehend others' research. These are all very important skills for a career in medicine.

What advice would you give current students who aspire to follow a similar career path? Keep working hard, it is a long road, but have patience that your dream will come true. Also do not be afraid to ask mentors and those ahead of you in their career path for help and advice.

What accomplishments are you most proud of (professionally and/or personally)?
I am most proud of getting into medical school, being a division 1 athlete and adopting a cat and a dog.

What do you enjoy doing with your free time? Family? Hobbies? Interests?  In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband, going on hikes with our dog, swimming, water polo, and spending time with my nieces and nephews.
