Hi! I’m originally from San Antonio, Texas, but I moved to Ann Arbor when I was 6 so I know my way around town. I went to U of M for undergrad where I studied biochem and did research with Dr. Wittkopp’s EEB/MCDB lab. A pre-med student, I applied to this program as a weird “gap year” to give myself an extra year to prepare for the MCAT and medical school applications, while broadening my base of knowledge in business subjects. Although the program focuses a lot on recruiting for jobs in business, I find that it’s really helping me move towards my aspirations of creating positive change in my work environment as a physician. I am currently working to start a club that will provide longitudinal guidance and infrastructure for MMs in years to come who are interested in careers in healthcare and life sciences.
