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.

Why USC?
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.
