Educational/professional background

I first completed my Associate of Science at Kent State University in 2017 and then my Bachelor of Arts at Miami University in 2019. My educational background is in history and microbiology, with a focus on nosocomial (hospital-acquired) infections. In my free time, I enjoy reading about the history of infectious diseases, especially the colonial (often tropical) diseases of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries.

What I enjoyed most about studying at LSHTM

I most enjoyed meeting the remarkable people that study, teach, conduct research, and work at LSHTM. This institution is truly a global melting pot of people with various backgrounds, interests, and skills. Therefore, I most enjoyed the degree of collegiality among classmates, which typifies the student experience at LSHTM. 

Since graduating I have been...

I made my way through the year-long medical school application process in the United States. Once my application cycle slowed in January, I became a substitute teacher in Ohio, a position that I will hold until medical school matriculation in July 2021. 

I also write a blog about the history of infectious diseases.
