Why Quillen  

Quillen was my number one choice when applying to medical schools because of QCOM's focus on primary care and its small class size. When touring Quillen's campus, I remember thinking how genuinely nice the admissions staff was to me, and how everyone I talked to had nothing but positive things to say about Quillen. I recently attended a conference in Washington, D.C., and I was honored to hear that Quillen graduates continuously give us a spectacular reputation. I made the right decision in choosing Quillen. 

Life Outside the Classroom

Even though medicine is a part of my identity, I still strive to find a balance in life. Making time for family, friends, hobbies, and sleep are all priorities. I work hard, but I play hard, too! 

Living in Northeast Tennessee

Northeast TN is absolutely beautiful and full of outdoor adventures. Hiking has become a favorite hobby of mine since moving to Johnson City. I am convinced this is the best area to go to medical school. I focus on studying medicine, but I also have options to explore the city and enjoy some free time. Johnson City has grown so much since I was a first year student, yet I can still travel from one end of the city to another without a headache!

Prior Life

I am a "traditional" student, which means I started Quillen immediately after graduating from my undergraduate college. I grew up in a small town and went to a small liberal arts university. Following this trend, Quillen offers a small class size and a personal learning environment in which everyone benefits. 

Words of Wisdom

Finding balance is key in succeeding in medical school--and enjoying the process! The mindset of "one day at a time" has proved to be the best advice I have received time and time again.
