Katy is a second-year intended Molecular Cell Biology major and Spanish minor from Little Rock, Arkansas. Additionally, she is studying to become a certified EMT so that she can volunteer with the Berkeley Medical Reserve Corps. This summer she worked in the Pediatric Surgery Lab at Arkansas Children’s Hospital on a study focusing on the prevention of necrotizing enterocolitis in premature infants. She adores the outdoors; hiking, camping, and visiting the lake are some of her favorites! And in her free time, Katy loves to try new foods, cycle, learn new songs on the guitar, and explore the Bay Area. In the future, she hopes to attend medical school and complete her ultimate bucket list item of visiting every continent in the world.
