Hi everyone! I’m a senior from Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, majoring in Biological Sciences. I’m the president of the Pathways Honors Society, treasurer for the Pre-Medicine Undergraduate Mentorship Program and was part of a team who presented at the Chicago Area Undergraduate Research Symposium (CAURS). I love exploring the city with my friends and going to concerts. I was also a Chicago Quarter (CQ) Mentor for two years. In this role, I taught the Common Hour portion of CQ classes, and helped guide freshmen through the transition into college. It’s been the favorite part of my college experience so far!
