“Harry Potter und die Kammer des Schreckens” – I am unashamedly using my childhood love of Harry Potter to stop the deterioration of my German language skills.

LATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT:
I recently started playing the mandolin. Maybe we shouldn’t call that an accomplishment until I’m halfway decent, though…

WHY THE GI RESEARCH FOUNDATION:
Getting involved in GI research gives me a sense of control over my Crohn’s disease. It is incredible to sit in Associates’ Board meetings with a group of inspiring young people who are taking an active role in the development of new treatments for these diseases that impact us all in some way.

FAVORITE QUOTE:
Cat’s got my tongue, so I guess “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” will have to do.

PROFILE:
Calculatingly adventurous. A generalist through and through. Ready to learn.

DRINK OF CHOICE:
Thin Mint Milkshake
