Brief intro
It was a passion for seeing technology and engineering solve problems that drove me towards studying biomedical engineering as an undergrad. While spending the last seven years in military service, I saw how simple solutions solved real world problems. Additionally, I learned how to achieve goals, which are not always quantifiable, by leveraging the strengths and talents of individual contributors. I am now a graduate student, pursuing degrees in business administration and public health. I'm most passionate about improving on a solution to neonatal jaundice using phototherapy by creating a simply designed product, helping lower costs and make treatment more widely available.
