Hi, y’all! I grew up mostly in Plano, Texas, and went to school at Yale in New Haven, Connecticut, where I majored in psychology. Before med school, I got my MPH from the Yale School of Public Health. Outside of school, I love reading, baking, taking long walks in Forest Park, obsessing over pop culture, and hanging out with friends. I also love animals — dogs, cats, crows, you name it! Feel free to ask me about public health, pets in med school, or anything else you can think of!
