Faculty Advisor: 
Healthcare is one of the largest, most dynamic, and most critical industries in America, and I am excited to be entering the field at this pivotal point in its history.  As a recent graduate of the M.D. program at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, I hope to apply the insights I have gained from caring for patients to the administration and management of healthcare organizations. My ultimate goal is to help organizations to facilitate the effective and efficient delivery of healthcare to as many patients as possible.
 
Prior to medical school, I completed my Bachelor of Science degree at Loyola University Maryland, with a major in Biology and minors in Chemistry and Business. I have worked in several research laboratories, investigating the neurophysiology of obesity at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, prophylaxis against nerve agents at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense, and electroconvulsive therapy for treatment-refractory depression at University of Maryland School of Medicine. I have also spent time as a test preparation expert, helping students from around the world to prepare for the GRE and GMAT examinations. Currently, I serve as a Graduate Assistant with the Public Health Science program, where I work with public health undergraduates who are interested in pursuing careers in healthcare.
