Past Employment: USC Keck School of Medicine


I didn't decide on medicine until my senior year at Pomona, and I took two years off before starting med school. I highly recommend taking time off to get experience working in the real world before diving back into academics - it gives you an understanding on what you may or may not be missing out on while dedicating your 20s to more education. Since starting med school I've started traveling pretty extensively, and I also picked up solo backpacking and diving. I've loved my last 4 years at Keck and I'm excited to starting my training in emergency medicine!
