About me: Hey! My name is Anna Tomz, and I am a Senior at the University of Washington. I'm currently on a pre-PA school track, and I am majoring in Medical Anthropology and Global Health. I attended my first year at UW during the COVID-19 pandemic, so I definitely had an interesting start to my time here :) I moved up to Washington from the Bay Area, CA, and some of my interests include hiking/backpacking, road biking, rock climbing, playing with my dog, and cooking. I've absolutely loved living in Seattle -- the city is amazing and there are so many beautiful natural areas to explore!! I'm always happy to talk to anyone about cool spots to check out or get recommendations for new things to try and places to visit. I was a Peer Educator for the 2021-22 school year, and I had a great time meeting new students and acting as both a mentor and friend to them. In addition to the Honors Program, I am involved with the Peaks and Professors Club, UW Climbing Club, and the Husky Triathlon Club. I also volunteer at the Burke Museum on campus and work at UW Medical Center. Please feel free to reach out if you want to talk about any shared interests or just meet another student at UW! I promise I don't bite :)
