It’s been a while since I’ve posted on here or uploaded a new YouTube video, but I guess that’s the nature of the internal medicine rotation. Can’t believe I’m now only 2 rotations away from completing my third year! .
Because it’s been a while since I’ve posted, I thought it might be a good time to share a little more about myself!
I was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. My senior year of high school I applied to a TON of colleges. I ended up choosing UNR because I was accepted into the 7-year dual degree BS-MD program. At the time it was so difficult to choose between this program and the other colleges I got accepted to (including my “dream school” at the time, Washington University in St. Louis). Luckily, I had great guidance from my teachers and counselors at @tmsmustangs and from my family and friends. While my parents are both practicing physicians, I NEVER felt pressure from them to go into medicine. Going to medical school was always my choice, but they’ve been nothing but supportive!
Although I’ve been curious about other possibilities, I’ve NEVER regretted the decision to choose BS-MD at Reno. Through this program I was able to complete my undergraduate degree at UNR in Neuroscience in 3 years, graduating summa cum laude with an honors thesis, meeting some of my best friends along the way and even becoming a certified yoga instructor! .
I then started med school here at @unrmed. I love being involved in extra curriculars from research to leadership to volunteering, all these things have seemed to add more MEANING to my life. When I’m not in the hospital or studying I love to practice yoga, play tennis, lift weights, hike, kickbox, cook (and eat), paint and spend time with my boyfriend @the_ryan_allen7 (who I met during my first year of med school).
Thanks for taking the time to learn more about me :) Hoping to get back to uploading YouTube videos more regularly again! .
