InGenius Prep

I am a former Executive Board Member of the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP), a former Admissions Executive Officer at the University of Michigan Medical School, and a former Pre-Health Advisor and Applications Specialist at the University of Michigan Career Center. Through these roles, I have had the opportunity to review thousands of medical school, graduate school, and post-graduate residency applications, as well as personally interview hundreds of applicants. Additionally, I am a former Instructor for the University of Michigan Department of Chemistry as well as for Kaplan Test Prep and Admissions, where I’ve had numerous years of teaching and advising experience which I find incredibly rewarding.

Currently, I am an orthopaedic surgery resident in the Harvard Combined Orthopaedic Residency Program (HCORP). Prior to residency, I graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Michigan with a B.S. degree in Biology with Distinction, and was fortunate to thereafter be selected as a Dean’s Merit Scholar and receive a full scholarship to the University of Michigan Medical School. I subsequently graduated with an M.D. degree with Distinction in Research, Distinction in Service, and Distinction in Medical Education. I also have an interest in aerospace medicine and space exploration and have spent time at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Johnson Space Center in preparation for a potential future as a flight surgeon or astronaut. Additionally, I am an avid sports fan and particularly enjoy football, soccer, tennis, golf, and, of course, any University of Michigan events. (Best game? First row seats for the first night game ever at The Big House against Notre Dame, which we won in the last minute, a scene which will forever live on framed in my house.)
