In June 2012, she will be the first to complete an MD and MS in Environment and Resources through Stanford’s Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources, a dual degree she worked with faculty and staff to design.

She hopes for a career joining clinical practice with ongoing research in global health and medical education. She enjoys writing, reading, learning languages, and being outside whenever possible.
