BioHello! My name is Madeline and I am headed off to Yale's School of Medicine next year to attend their PA program.graduated. I've always known I want to pursue a career in medicine but also love the environment. I combined both my passions in undergrad by studying both environmental science and biology with an environmental health concentration at UNC Chapel Hill. My current two roles in dermatology and emergency medicine have furthered my love and interest in medicine. Besides my love for medicine, I enjoy staying very active. I am on multiple soccer teams and workout regularly. I also enjoy reading, embroidery, and I have joined my local bee keeping club.
