Andrea is a senior in the College of Biological Sciences majoring in biochemistry. She is currently a volunteer with the Healthy Brain Program at Regions Hospital, where she works one-on-one with elderly patients to help reduce the occurrence of delirium brought on by hospital stays. She is also a teaching assistant for BIOC 3021, and participates in directed research in a genetics lab focusing on DNA replication and its relation to transformed cells.

Andrea’s hobbies include working out, reading interior design blogs, and cooking. She loves fitness and is always looking for new healthy fitness recipes to try out.

What is the most meaningful experience you've had as a pre-medical student thus far?
"The most meaningful experience that I have had thus far would have to be working with the Healthy Brain Program. So often elderly patients are overlooked, but by being able to sit and interact with them on a personal level, I have gained a new respect for our most mature citizens.”
