Biology, 2005

Captain and flight surgeon in the U.S. Army

I was the first college graduate in my family. I was class president, secretary of the Campus Activities Board and also held positions in Beta Phi Gamma and in numerous honor societies.

After graduation, I attended Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and graduated with a doctorate in osteopathic medicine in 2009. I then spent three years in a residency in internal medicine at the Madigan Army Medical Clinic.

I am stationed in Sinai, Egypt, where I serve as flight surgeon for the Multinational Force and Observers, an international organization designed to supervise the implementation of the security provisions of the Egyptian-Israeli Treaty of Peace.

My classes prepared me to get into medical school and have that background of knowledge to understand the physiology of the human body. The opportunities I had in terms of being involved in multiple organizations made me a well-rounded person and provided the skills I need to be a leader in the Army.
