Currently I am a Post-baccalaureate Premedical Student at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts. I will spend the coming year working as a medical scribe at the Lawrence Memorial and Melrose-Wakefield Hospitals and as a research assistant with the Simulation Team at Lahey Health. In the mean time, I will be applying to medical school.
At various points in my life, I have been a development worker, math and science teacher, professional naturalist, amateur photographer and writer, fiddle player in various American musical traditions, and pursuer of all things outdoors. I served with the U.S. Peace Corps as an education Resource Specialist for the Schools and Community Resources project in the Republic of South Africa. I also taught middle school science at Spartanburg Day School in South Carolina (2009-2011) and at the summer program at Choate Rosemary Hall in Connecticut (2009). I also served as a Mentor and taught natural history at the Green River Preserve in North Carolina (2010). I graduated from Davidson College in North Carolina with a B.S. in Biology and a minor in Anthropology (2009); I graduated from The Westminster Schools in Georgia (2005). Though I am now pursuing medicine, I remain dedicated to the ideals of education. I hope to incorporate what I have learned as a teacher into my future work as a physician.
