Advice: Medical school is hard. You will have your good days, and you will have your bad days. you cannot dwell on things you cannot change, but instead, remind yourself that you are here for a reason. Keep your heads up and work toward your dreams because you will someday change patients' lives!

Why I chose OSU-COM: I chose OSU-COM because of It's dedication to producing well rounded physicians. Every year, they have physicians who match into a variety of specialties. I believe this reflects the school's ability to analyze the class's success before improving the success of future classes. They support every student's accomplishment, listen to their students, and implement change. 


  • Campus Involvement
    • I am the Class of 2025 Secretary! I oversee creating our weekly schedule with all our classes, labs, clubs/events, birthdays, assignments, etc. so that everyone is in one place! 
    • I am the Family Medicine (SAACOFP) treasurer. I keep track of our budget and help in other aspects. 
    • I am a member of the Global Medicine Club. Last December, I went on a study abroad trip with this club to provide medical care to rural towns in Veracruz, Mexico. I am planning on going on the trip this December as well. 
    • I am a member of the Pediatrics Club, SAAO (OMM), OOGSA (OB/GYN), SIM Club, and StORM (Rural Medicine). All these clubs do various events/volunteering opportunities throughout the community. They do drives for local women's shelters, provide education about preventative health conditions, and volunteer at health clinics. Most clubs also host residents and physicians in their field, so you can ask questions and see what a typical day looks like if you pursue that field.

As part of this committee, I try to bridge the students with our faculty and staff so that different issues can be addressed- this way, students can focus on studying rather than trying to figure out how to use something before they can study. 
    • Lastly, I am an Anatomy TA. I had to put in much time in the anatomy lab last year, so I decided to apply to be a TA to teach the students the tricks I learned when I was in their shoes.

Advice: Be kind always. Make as many connections as you can along the way. Enjoy every second of the process; it is its own chapter in your life. 

Why I chose OSU-COM: I knew I wanted to go to OSU-COM from the beginning of my journey after working with many OSU-COM Physicians while I was a nurse. It was solidified for me when I began reaching out and showing interest in admissions and recruitment. They helped me grow as a person, a student, and a future provider while I continued my undergrad journey. They continually showed interest in who I was above all else. They guided me with the tools to become a great physician, but they also invested in me to ensure I would be a great person within the community I would provide care to. And I loved and appreciated that.

Simulation club does several events throughout the year focusing on using our state-of-the-art equipment to prepare us for real scenarios from inpatient/ICU patients, Emergency/Trauma patients, Peds patients, OB/neonatal patients, and surgical patients with skills we can take with us throughout our journey and healthcare careers. Many health care entities use our simulation lab all over the state to t, such as life flight companies, nursing, and residencies.

Why I chose OSU-COM: I chose OSU-COM because of its mission to provide doctors to rural Oklahoma. Living near Eufaula, it is important to me to go back home to practice. OSU-COM has a rural medicine track and a rural residency program in the field I hope to enter. 


  • Campus Involvement
    • On campus, I am the class 2025 Vice President. This is probably my favorite role in medical school because I get to be a part of planning all the events for our class. This includes a 5K, food drive, talent show, end-of-the-year party, and the med gala. I also am part of the Peds club event committee, so I get to help plan events. 
    • I am the StORM club Vice President. This is the rural medicine club. My goal is to practice near Eufaula when I am older, so I am trying to get as much rural experience as possible. The rural medicine club has helped me learn about my options and become a member of the rural medicine track. This track allows me to have most of my rotations for the third and fourth year in rural Oklahoma to learn to care for patients in towns like mine. 
    • I am on the STRIDE research team. Dr. Micah Hartwell leads this. He helps us do literature-based research in fields we are interested in. I have been the first author in manuscript publications and assisted in many poster presentations.

Specialty Interest: Primary Care or Internal Medicine



Advice: Putting your best effort into medical school doesn't mean studying every second of the day - it also means taking care of yourself! Take time for hobbies, working out, cooking, and other self-care. If you carve out time for yourself each day to take a break, your grades will also benefit. 

Why I chose OSU-COM: I chose OSU-COM for its emphasis on training physicians in rural and underserved communities. As someone passionate about veteran healthcare, I admired OSU-COM's philosophy and how they emphasized training physicians to combat disparities. I wanted OSU-COM to provide my training as a doctor, so I could learn how to care for these unique populations from the beginning.

    • Interal Medicine (SOIMA): I am a member of this club because internal medicine is also one of my interests. Along with hearing from practicing doctors, there are events that the club does that allow us to have hands-on experiences in the SIM lab. 
    • Rural Medicine Club (StORM): I joined this club so that I could learn what it is like practicing in a rural area and the obstacles that these physicians and their patients face so that I can better tackle those when I work in a rural area (which is most of OK).
