InGenius Prep

I am in my second year at Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. For my undergraduate degree, I attended Dartmouth College, where I studied health economics and German. Before starting medical school, I completed a pre-medical post-baccalaureate program at Bryn Mawr and conducted health economics research at Penn.

Before any interest in medicine, I ski raced professional with the U.S. Ski Team and trained for the Winter Olympics. Cut short by a few injuries, I found a new passion in medicine and economics. I know how important mentors are for medical students and how difficult it can be to find valuable feedback for improvement. As an admission coach, I love using my experiences to help students develop their passions and navigate the complex admission process.

While I no longer spend half of my days on the ski hill, I still hit the slopes as often as I can and love the outdoors. My wife and I are huge sports fans, and we stay plugged into Baseball, Football, Skiing, Tennis, and Formula 1. When we can steal away, we love to travel around the world for new adventures.
