I received my Bachelor’s of Arts in Spanish at The Ohio State University with a focus in Iberian Studies and Latin American Literature. I am currently finishing my Master’s of Science in Narrative Medicine at Columbia University in the City of New York. Although a large majority of my work is within the humanities and the medical humanities, I am currently applying to medical school; therefore, I have taken all of the required science courses and labs and taken the MCAT. I enjoy both the science and “humanity” of medicine, and my education reflects that: I have a vast range of experience in the humanities from foreign language to literary theory to philosophy, and also in the sciences from modern physics to physiology.

My teaching style is heavily based on having the student actively articulate their thoughts aloud. Thus, when I tutor I encourage students to interact, reflect, and engage in “meta-cognition,” thinking about thinking. I also can do “lecture-style” sessions, but only to supplement discussion. My goal is for students to have a conceptual understanding of the material, structured reasoning skills, and confidence in their abilities. I have been a guest lecturer for a medical humanities course at the University of Connecticut for pre-medical students, taught a narrative medicine course at Columbia for pre-medical students and post-baccalaureate students, and I am will continue this year assisting with courses at the narrative medicine program.

Outside of academics, I enjoy exercise (weight-lifting), television (Doctor Who, Sherlock, etc), and films. I read excessively and indiscriminately: from a Philip K. Dick science fiction novel, to a Warren Ellis comic book, to Pablo Neruda’s poetry, to Derrida’s philosophy.
