I love guitar. I played bass in a band for the first couple undergraduate years (which explains some poor early grades). I also like running, lifting weights, painting, and fishing. As I studied psychology my interests grew toward psychiatry. I have some shadowing experience in the San Antonio psychiatry dept. However, after a cell physiology course, I turned very interested in pathology. I have over 40 hours of shadowing in a path. lab. I've spent about 40 hours volunteering in an ER. Currently, I finishing up a masters degree in cell biology. My research deals with organelle transport mechanisms (pharmacology). I teach three labs (two A&P and one vert. physiology).
