Hi!! I’m entering my third year at McGill as a U2 biology major with a minor in psychology. This is my second year on the MEDLIFE executive team as VP Finance and Sponsorship, and in my first year I was in the sponsorship committee. After my first year of university I went on the mobile clinic trip to Lima, Peru. This past summer I was fortunate enough to go on a ‘Leadership Corps’ trip to Ecuador and Peru with MEDLIFE’s founder, Nick Ellis. This trip was truly eye opening, further instilling my passion for the work we do. I manage the club’s finances throughout the year, and work closely with other committees to obtain sponsorship for our wide variety of events. Please feel free to contact me with any and all questions(:
