I am currently in my final semester at Washington and Jefferson College, and I will be graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Biochemistry this spring. I am extraordinarily excited to become a research assistant at Boston University School of Medicine starting in June. This position will allow me to explore my clinical research interest while preparing for the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT).
I've had amazing opportunities academically mentoring matriculating first-year students, virtually tutoring elementary kids in math, working with various students as the president of a community-based honor society, and teaching subject matter concepts as a lab assistant for analytical chemistry biochemistry labs. As a tutor, I try to tie in as many real-world examples to make confusing topics more manageable and applicable to everyday life. I like teaching challenging topics in many different ways until the student can confidently grasp the idea. In addition to concepts, I encourage and help my students find and try different studying techniques that suit them best.
Outside of an academic environment, I often lift weights, run, spend time with close family, or enjoy finding a new restaurant to try.
Education & Certification
Undergraduate Degree: Washington & Jefferson College - Bachelor in Arts, Biochemistry
I really enjoy staying as active as possible. Throughout college, working out and hiking have become a large stress reliever for me. I have run two marathons with my friends. I am an avid reader and have accumulated enough books to last me at least the next two years. I enjoy talking about science and learning new facts. I am starting to get more interested in cooking so if anyone has any good recipes please let me know.
