Q & A

Hometown: Reisterstown, MD

Why Did You Choose Your Major?

My favorite show during high school was “House.” I was fascinated by the process of unraveling medical mysteries and discovered that I also want to help others by solving their ailments. I then flipped a coin between Biology and Chemistry to see which one I would major in before I apply to medical school (Biology won out).

What is Your Favorite Way to Procrastinate?

I like to take a quick nap after practice and sometimes watch something on Netflix. Around 9:00 PM I realize that I should probably get started on my work. I then grab a coffee and crack open the books.
