Not only is learning about biological systems and the process of drug discovery interesting, but it is also very fulfilling work. The creation of treatments for common diseases can give rise to a larger population of people who can age healthier and for longer. Working to find the next discovery can pass on that hope to those who did not before.
Research Lab: Prof. Alexander (Leggy) Arnold
Major Area of Focus: Biochemistry
As a previous undergraduate at UWM, I know that my time at this provided many opportunities to grow my passion to learn a subject under a variety of scopes. Additionally, the faculty has challenged me to grow my critical thinking skills, appreciate the boundary between chemistry and physical condition, and lead me in research. This has urged me to continue my education at this school.
For fun, I love to be active! As an alumnus of UWM’s D1 women’s track and field team, that activity tends to be running. I also love hiking and camping. I also have a strong passion for art and use a large variety of mediums to paint and draw. More recently, I illustrated a published children’s book titled “The Adventures of Curious Cult: A New Home”.
