July 2024 marks the beginning of my medical studies at Ohio University’s Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine. I am also a fellow of the Transformative Care Continuum⎼an accelerated program of study in Family Medicine⎼and am pre-matched with the Family Medicine Residency Program at the Cleveland Clinic Lakewood Family Health Center.

Before changing careers I was a guest researcher in Comparative Literature at Utrecht University (The Netherlands) and a visiting assistant professor of Comparative Literature and Musical Studies at Oberlin College. My career transition was immensely facilitated and supported by the Pre-Medical Program and Career Development & Exploration at Cleveland State University.

I am also part of the Schola Cantorum Lorain, a small vocal ensemble that mainly sings Renaissance polyphony and performs The Office of Compline every Sunday at 9:00 PM, October through April.
