Personal Interests:

I am passionate about athletics and education, including empowering young women to reach their potential in sports and in STEM fields. I am currently applying to medical school where I hope to matriculate in Fall 2017 and study orthopedic surgery. I love the outdoors and am an avid road and mountain cyclist, runner, hiker, and skier. I also enjoy reading and baking in my spare time.
