I currently attend the Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha, Nebraska. For my undergraduate work, I attended Rockhurst University in Kansas City, Missouri, where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with a minor in Spanish. While at Rockhurst, I worked as a tutor at the university's Learning Center, where I tutored students in a variety of science subjects, including Biology, Organic Chemistry, Physics, Chemistry and Microbiology. Though I have tutored several subjects, my favorite is Biology, because I consider it fascinating and very useful. I believe that approaching one's subject material with the correct attitude is key, and that hard work and determination are conducive to success in academics. Outside of academia, I enjoy exercising and playing volleyball, as well as reading and spending time with friends.
