I’m someone who’s passionate about healthcare, music, and cars/motorcycles. I value mentorship highly and enjoy helping others reach their goals. I’m interested in health economics and the US healthcare industry. Medicine is only 1/2 of healthcare in the US, and I want to prepare myself to help lead in our future healthcare system.

Big Life Wins:
1. Being accepted into a top medical program with a scholarship was a big win for me, especially coming from a low-income background. 2. I worked with administration (both at my high school and undergrad institution) to increase the representation of low-income or minority students. Both experiences were fulfilling and reasonably successful.
Post MBA Goal:
My goal in pursuing an MBA is to round myself out as a change-agent and put myself in a position to impact communities that are currently disadvantaged in our healthcare system. I want to work as an MD/MBA in some clinical capacities and at the systems level through administration, healthcare delivery/operations, or innovation.
