Education

Cal Poly San Luis Obispo - B.S. in Wine and Viticulture

Narrative

Before coming to med school I studied Landscape Architecture, Wine and Viticulture and worked for many years in the food and beverage industry.  This diverse background gave me a unique education and insight into finding a career that was right for me. After graduating from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo I began volunteering at a Cardiac Rehabilitation Center. This experience began to evolve my interests in the field of medicine and showed me what a challenging, scientific, humanitarian career could look like. The philosophical approach of the osteopathic community aligns strongly with my own personal beliefs.  This hands on, whole person, humanistic approach is also what I see so well represented within the OMM/NMM department.  Being a teaching fellow and connecting more closely with the heart of the osteopathic community brings me one step closer to becoming the well-rounded osteopathic physician I want to be.
