About Me: 

Born and raised in Phoenix, AZ, I am very close to my large family of five siblings. When we're not giving an eery impression of the Shining twins by speaking unintentionally at the same time, we hike, watch movies and generally get on famously. I began looking into medicine my Junior year at ASU and turned my attention to psychiatry after seeing how dramatically mental illness can affect someone's life and the difficulty in finding the right treatment. During and after my graduation from ASU, I worked as a Research Technician at the Biodesign Institute for the Center of Personalized Diagnostics which is where my affinity and commitment to research solidified. I am determined to improve treatment and diagnostic methods and am excited to learn how with dual degree training. In my spare time, I am an avid reader and movie-watcher and like to stay active with hiking and weightlifting.
