I am currently an M.D./M.P.H. student at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine (views = mine). When I am not conducting research or studying, I consult for and advise medical device companies, MedTech companies, and other organizations on how to best improve the quality of life for older adults. My long-term goal is to become a practicing physician working at the intersection of policy, management, and health innovation to help create a health care system where we can all age gracefully.
Prior to medical school, I graduated from Washington University of St. Louis with a degree in Neuroscience. At WashU, I was selected as a Rhodes Finalist and a member of Phi Beta Kappa. I conducted research in the ophthalmology lab of Rajendra Apte M.D. Ph.D., where I co-authored multiple publications on age-related macular degeneration. In May 2019, my junior year, I founded Create Circles, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, to address older adult loneliness in long-term care. This work continues today and assists thousands of people weekly.
I am a proud graduate of the Gatton Academy for Mathematics and Science in Kentucky. While studying here, I was selected as a Siemens Semifinalist for my research on combatting antibiotic resistance with gold-nanoparticles.
"My grandfather once told me that there are two kinds of people: those who do the work and those who take the credit. He told me to try to be in the first group; there was much less competition there."
