If you asked me when I was 17 what I wanted to do with my life, I probably would’ve told you I was going to be a writer. All throughout college I wrote my school’s newspaper, worked for the radio station, and thought I was going to be a journalist. Around February of my senior year I interviewed a trauma surgeon for a feature piece of healthcare I was working on. He let me shadow him in the hospital, sit in on a few surgeries, and it had a profound effect on me. Just being in the hospital, watching him give people a chance to continue living their lives humbled me in a new way and inspired me to pursue a career in healthcare.

As an intern for SCOPE, I hope to provide comfort and ease to patients and families in stressful, unfamiliar situations. For many people, being in an ER can be one of the worst days of their lives. Helping experienced, compassionate physicians guiding them from sickness to health excites me and I hope to better the patient experience in whatever way I can.
