I am a true San Francisco native. My education background includes a triple major in Biomedical Sciences, Biochemistry and Theology with minors in Biology and Chemistry from Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI. I completed my MD from American University of Antigua and am currently preparing for my USMLE (United States Medical Licensing Examination). I have taught high school Sciences in the past and can teach most Math through Calculus. While at Marquette, I completed a congressional internship on Capitol Hill with David Obey (2003), so I also specialize in AP US History and AP Government.
