I’m originally from Atlanta, GA, where I attended The Westminster Schools before heading to Stanford University. At Stanford, the only thing I was sure I wanted to do was sing, so I quickly joined Stanford’s Mixed Company, an a cappella group, and started studying engineering. Then Stanford’s Pacific Free Clinic (PFC), which provides care to the urban underserved of San Jose, transformed my life. In working with and through PFC’s patients—initially as a health educator and then as a preclinical volunteer—I had found my passion: medicine. So, I changed my major, graduating from Stanford with a BS in Biology conferred with departmental honors. And I continued to stay involved with PFC, ultimately serving as one of four student managers. I was then fortunate enough to be accepted to Jefferson Medical College, where I am currently in my second year, and still singing with the Jefferson Arrhythmias.
