Bio

I’m currently a sophomore at Columbia University studying Neuroscience and completing the pre-medical track. If I weren’t on track to become a doctor, I’d pursue interior design, but I have intentions of becoming an anesthesiologist. I’ve taken steps in this direction by working as a medical scribe in several NJ offices over the summer. I’d also like to work as a pharmacy technician, a relevant change from my recent occupation as a lifeguard.


In high school, I was president of the Key Club and ran and hurdled my way through all three seasons of Cross Country and Track. This commitment to fitness stayed with me even in college; when I’m not studying, I’m enjoying runs along the Hudson River or attending group fitness classes like spin and yoga. Aside from new workout clothing, most of my money tends to go towards good food with good people–a worthy expense in my opinion. Fun fact: I’m a pescatarian! I haven’t fully mapped it out yet, but my 5-year Plan includes California and dogs!
