I’ve always been scientifically oriented – I made my dad buy me a chemistry set and a telescope when I was a kid. I used to listen to my family members’ hearts with a Fischer Price stethoscope.
I’ve also always loved music, and being up on a stage. Beginning piano lessons at age 7, music and performance has taken many different shapes throughout my life from theater to a capella, to songwriting. (And currently to violin lessons. Which I suck at, but I’m doing it anyway.)
For the last 3 years, I’ve been simultaneously in naturopathic medical school and pursuing music. One isn’t a backup plan for the other – both are equal parts of me. That’s why I am so honored my school, Bastyr University, thought this was interesting and wanted to ask me about it. Here’s the link to the article! It’s no fancy music blog, but I’m so proud of it.
