I am a junior Biology major at George Fox University. Research interests me because it involves hands-on learning and critical thinking, each of which is critical preparation for my post-graduate education. I plan to attend medical school, but experiences such as this are necessary if I am to become a scholarly physician.
In addition to my interest in research and the medical field, I have a great love for the outdoors. Growing up between the mountains and the coast, much of my lifetime has been spent embracing nature. Field research, therefore, intrigues me because it is an opportunity to combine my love of both nature and science.
