Undergrad College: San Diego State University '12

Major: Bioengineering

Graduate College: Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, MS; Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, MD '23

Work Experience: I have worked as a research scientist in cardiology, including research developing models to study the heart using stem cells - one of which is going to the International Space Station in 2022! While not as exiting, I have also worked in the health insurance industry.

My Admissions Story: I found an advisor I trusted and used their advice and any help they offered. Only good things came from having an extra set of eyes to look at essays and complete applications. The key for me was to find that person early on, and build that advisor-advisee relationship.

Welcome! We’re glad to have you.
