A Summer Update

Aug. 2, 2018—I definitely had a busy summer this year, but I enjoyed every minute of it. Of course, it involved many home cooked meals, my comfy bed, and countless hours of Netflix.

What It’s Like to Work on Campus

Feb. 28, 2018—Most people who know me well know will tell you that I work in a “nut lab” here at Vanderbilt. This is the colloquial name we have given to the research core in the medical center where I have spent several hours a week since arriving to campus. The reason we call it the nut...

On Fall Break

Oct. 15, 2017—Fall break holds a special place in my heart. It’s a comma in the middle of a sentence – a pause before the next movement of a symphony.

Balancing a Job and Schoolwork Somewhat Well

Apr. 11, 2017—Life here at Vandy can be pretty overwhelming.  It can also be super overwhelming if, like me, you have a disorganized work ethic, a dedication to napping daily, and an obsession with social media that inhibits you from ever being 100%, wholeheartedly productive in the realm of academics.

A Junior’s Professional JournEY

Apr. 1, 2017—“So, what do you want to be when you grow up?” My answer to this question has changed multiple times, but now that I’m a college junior (soon to be senior….yikes), I’ve had to think more critically about my answer (unfortunately, saying astronaut isn’t cute anymore).

Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

Mar. 3, 2017—Pre-med, pre-law, pre-dent…the list goes on, especially in the healthcare industry. Chances are, you’ll either meet someone who’ll follow the “pre-__” track or you’ll follow one yourself. I certainly did: I was pre-med.
