Pathology and Cell Biology

Class of 2024

Hometown: Temple, TX

Field of Interest: Cytopathology

Why USF: I chose USF because of the diversity available in training. It offered the chance to train in multiple settings with a wide variety of specimen types making me both well-rounded and prepared for any future pathology position I may encounter. In addition, as a former military spouse and Veterans Administration employee it was important to me to attend a residency program with an affiliation where I would have the opportunity to continue to serve that patient population in some capacity. I came first as a rotating medical student and loved the location, the city, the sunshine, and most importantly the people here. The opportunity to train with them in this location is an honor.
