Junior Parlee Center Fellow

In order for science to play a role in advancing society, public support is mandatory. Thus, I am committed to generating interest in science for the sake of educating the public. After Ursinus, I will pursue a career in surgery while fueling my passion for music by collecting records.

Life After Ursinus

After graduating, I intend to attend medical school. After exposure to numerous medical specialties, I became especially interested in surgery due to the ability to directly address an illness. I became especially interested in trauma due to the fast-paced environment.
