My Story:

My leadership experiences include: Peer Leader for the Pre-Medicine Themed Learning Community (TLC), Peer Leader for the Summer Research Opportunities Program and being an Undergraduate Research Assistant to Dr. Barrie Bode. My extracurriculars include volunteering at Kishwaukee Hospital with Deb Nier and NIU Phi Sigma Biology Honors Society overseen by Dr. Ken Gasser. I am interested in community service, welcoming students, and participating in student organizations. 

An academic goal I have is to earn my M.D. and Ph.D while my career goal is to become a Physician-Scientist specializing in Oncology Research and Therapeutics-Diagnostics. 

Scholarships I have received include: Forward, Together Forward Memorial Scholarship, and the NIU Operating Staff Council Dependent Scholarship. 

Some of my hobbies are reading Sci-Fi, playing video games or board games, and being in a lab.
