UVM cultivates an environment that presents opportunities for personal and professional development. On beautiful Vermont sunny days I love to hike mountains beyond mountains and in the cold winter months I enjoy snowboarding through fresh powder. Throughout my four years at UVM I have taken advantage of many experiential learning opportunities. From undergraduate research to coveted internships with the Vermont Department of Health Laboratory and the Vermont Chief Medical Examiner, I have sampled a wide array of topics that have helped narrow down my interests and passions. The faculty in MMG are emotionally invested in the success of their students and have truly helped shape my experience at UVM!
