When you were young, what did you think you wanted to be "when you grow up?"
I think from a young age I've always known I've wanted to be a doctor, and now I'm at Hofstra pursuing that goal!
What career do you hope your first job after graduate will be?
After graduating I hope to go to Medical School, so I hope my first job will be a Resident working in the hospitals.
What experience have you had so far that you think is best preparing you to reach that goal?
I've been fortunate to have good advisement from major heads in my department, this has allowed me to take classes to prepare me for my future career as a Doctor.
What advice would you have for others who are pursuing this same career?
Study, study, study! Don't lose track of the big picture and as long as you stay focused you will be fine!
Who at Hofstra has had the biggest positive impact on you?
Dr. Israel Schwartz has had a huge impact, I owe him a great deal for helping me to stay focused on my path to my career.
