Empathetic and direct, I believe in initiative, efficiency, dedication, integrity, honesty, and positivity. I am not a stranger to hard work, and never will be. My goal in any position is to understand and perform my role, while critically reflecting on how to improve and help others within and outside of my organization.
After finding my passion for human pathology at Wenatchee Valley College, I went to Pacific Lutheran University to pursue a Bachelor's in Nursing. After a year of Nursing, I realized my mindset was more research oriented; subsequently, I switched to a Bachelor's in Biology.
Now in my final year, I have had the opportunity to study abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark. At the Danish Institute for Study Abroad, I have interviewed and been lectured by a multitude of biotechnological representatives, from the CEO's of small biotech companies like iQur and Galecto Biotech, to the VP of Corporate Research Affairs for Novo Nordisk, Børge Diderichsen.
I see myself researching cellular, molecular, and genetic biology as they relate to disease processes. Ideally, I would like to contribute to cures.
