I grew up in a rural area and spent a lot of time in my mother’s clinic. I saw the way that she was able to change lives through medicine, and I felt a deep desire to do the same. My experiences in college, shadowing local rural physicians, and in JAMP have continued to motivate me towards my goal of serving underserved communities through medicine. I am currently studying biology at Texas A&M University - Commerce, and I live on our family farm outside Greenville, TX.
