Hello everyone!

I'm a sophomore from Overland Park, KS studying Biochemistry and Spanish on the Pre-Medical track. I'm your person if you want to talk about biology, chemistry, physics, math - basically anything in the sciences - because I absolutely love them all!

I am currently a Peer Advisor at KU's Undergraduate Advising Center. Before taking this position, I was a lawn-mowing entrepreneur serving over 40 clients. On campus, I am involved in organizations such as the Phi Delta Epsilon Pre-Medical fraternity, KU Christian Challenge, and the University Honors Program.

My two favorite hobbies, by far, are socializing and learning. I'm shy at first, but I'm an extravert at heart, so I love talking and meeting new people. My curiosity for knowledge has fueled many 3-hour sessions clicking through Wikipedia's blue links, reading about topics from Octopi to Hermès.

The most important facet of my life, however, is my relationship with Jesus Christ. I try to exude Jesus's love and follow His example in all arenas of my life.
