Why I changed my career (or educational objectives):
I want to remain in healthcare. My interests in physiology and pharmacology have helped to drive my decision to pursue medicine.
USC is known for its rigorous academic standards, which is a quality that I feel is important in preparing for a medical education. I also love the diversity of both the campus and the city of LA. There are boundless opportunities for medical volunteering and shadowing at several well-known medical centers in the area as well.
Favorite Class/Professor at USC:
Favorite class: BISC220 because I enjoyed the physiology. Favorite prof: Dr Bickers!! He is the man.
Experiences with medicine
Experiences with medicine: SICU RN at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for three years.
When I'm not studying or volunteering
When I'm not studying or volunteering or working, I enjoy living in the South Bay and enjoying the SoCal sun! I also love to travel.
