Katie graduated from the University of Minnesota with a BA in Global Studies with a focus in Human Rights and Public Health and a Minor in French. During her time as an undergraduate, she studied abroad in Senegal where she interned at a rural clinic. It was through this experience that Katie became passionate about Global Health and improving access to quality healthcare in underserved communities and resource poor settings around the world. Katie’s interests include traveling, literature, music, getting active in the outdoors and eating new and delicious foods. She is currently working as a medical scribe in the Emergency Department at North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale, Minnesota while she completes her pre-medical coursework. She hopes to be accepted into an MD-MPH program and eventually work in Global Health. While she is keeping her mind open to specialties that would best fit her goals, she has a keen interest in Emergency Medicine.
