Year at UW: Third

Hometown: Portland, Oregon

About me: Hello! I am a junior double majoring in marine biology and physiology. I am fascinated by the ocean, and I love animals. I am planning to attend veterinary school and specialize in the care of marine mammals someday. If you are interested in veterinary school or anything biology related, please reach out to me, I would love to talk! I would be happy to answer questions about fitting in requirements for a double major, preparing for a career in healthcare, finding undergrad research opportunities, internships, or studying abroad. I love the honors program because it provides me with the opportunity to take small classes outside of my major where I can really get to know my fellow classmates and professors. Don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have questions about the best restaurants on the ave, the best spaces to study on campus, or getting involved with greek life!
