Bio: I graduated from UMass Amherst in Spring 2019 with two bachelor’s degrees and three majors. During my time as an undergraduate, I worked as an EMT, played for my school’s club lacrosse team, volunteered at a local soup kitchen, worked in an organic chemistry teaching laboratory, and conducted my honors thesis in a neuroscience laboratory that utilized EEG technology to investigate the neural correlates of syntactic hierarchical structure building in number word phases. My time at Dermcare Physicians & Surgeons has been the most incredible learning experience I could have hoped for as a gap intern. With countless direct patient care hours, an inside look into the daily operations of a private practice, and physician mentors that truly invested in my future aspirations, I know this position has given me the tools I’ll need to succeed in medical school. This position has provided many lessons- big and small- that I will carry with me throughout my time as a medical student and beyond. In my free time, I enjoy working out, reading, kayaking, crafting, skiing, coaching a youth lacrosse team, playing with my dog, and spending time with friends and family.
