I've always enjoyed tutoring and I firmly believe the best way to really process information is to be able to teach it. I'm loving staying sharp on my anatomy and the basic sciences. Not to mention, college is very hard and I love giving help so everyone can push through their toughest classes and reach their end goals.Background?
I grew up in Wisconsin and made the move to Boulder for college with no intentions of leaving! I was a pre-med student at CU and wanted to study integrative physiology to give myself a solid background in all body systems and how the entire unit functions in unison. Simultaneously, going in depth and studying molecular pathways of the nervous system gave me a great duality in my education between the micro and macroscopic aspects of the human body. Not to mention, the brain is just super cool.Interests?
I'm really into running, hiking, and skiing. Cooking and eating are some of my favorite leisure activities along with knitting and hanging out with my dog (the light of my life). I'm a big fan of all the local breweries Boulder has to offer and hitting up happy hour at the St. Julien or the Med. My favorite coffee shop on campus is definitely Pekoe, the tea is bomb.Plans?
I'll be starting medical school next summer at Rocky Vista University in Parker, CO. I'm very excited to finally have reached my goal of getting into med school, it goes to show all the hard work will pay off one day (I promise!) In the meantime, I'm enjoying working as an optician and amounting an obscene number of glasses, I'm looking forward to taking some time off, traveling, and living the life before starting school.
