Hi everyone! My name is Bri (she/her) and I am so stoked to be one of your SAs this year! I'm a senior from Dallas, Texas, but I consider myself a Floridian at heart. Being a dedicated(ish) pre-med, I thought I would major in biology or chemistry, but after taking the core and seeing all the fascinating topics covered in HumBio, I was hooked. I'm concentrating in the neurological basis of disease, which has given me a deeper understanding of neuroscience and how neurological malfunctions lead to illness. Tying into this theme, I'll be doing an honors thesis examining the clinical characteristics of different neuro-inflammatory diseases. In the not so distant future, I hope to become pediatric neurologist that specializes in making kiddos feel better.
Outside of HumBio, I love to dance with DV8 or take class in Roble Arts Gym. I'm even considering dancing professionally for a while after I graduate! I'm really passionate about mentoring and helping others, so I'm involved with The Phoenix Scholars mentorship program, as well as staffing on campus and being a HumBio tutor! After attending HB-Rex, I fell in the love with the Stanford PANS lab, so I spend a lot of time working there as well. In my free time, I like going to TAP for cajun fries, watching Rick and Morty, and binging poor quality Netflix shows. I cannot wait to spend time with you all (virtually) and help you find your place in this amazing community!
