Amy graduated from UCLA in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in biology. She first developed a passion for serving others through her work with Bruin Initiative, a student organization that provides free SAT classes to local high school juniors. As SAT director of the program for two years and president her senior year, Amy was able to help expand the classes from serving 15 students her freshman year to over 70 students by her senior year. She also spent time volunteering at Mayo Clinic, Ronald Reagan Medical Center and the Simms/Mann Clinic in Santa Monica, where she was able to learn more about disparities in health care. Throughout college, Amy also worked as a student teacher for the UCLA Krieger Child Care Center, teaching assistant for the Duke Talent Identification Program, and campus recruitment ambassador for City Year. After graduation, Amy returned to Jacksonville to further serve her community as an AmeriCorps member.

Amy is honored to be attending the FSU College of Medicine and is excited to use her experiences working with the underserved to advance the college’s patient-centered mission.
