Tell us about your path towards medicine.

My path towards medicine started at home with my mom, my auntie, my uncle, and my cousins being in the healthcare industry. I originally started as a pharmacy technician before I became a licensed Respiratory Care Practitioner. My caring and nurturing spirit allowed me to be a great asset in medicine as a healthcare professional.

What made you choose Midwestern University?

My campus interview made me choose Midwestern University because the staff and students were very welcoming and professional. As a licensed healthcare professional, I felt like I belong here. I was impressed with the information that I had learned about Midwestern University. I felt a sense of acceptance and inclusiveness at my interview.

What are you most excited about going forward?

Moving forward, I am so excited about meeting my classmates and working together with them so that we all can finish Midwestern University strong and successful. I’m also excited about giving back to my school and underserved communities.
