How long have you been a member of IAMSE? 
This is my first year of being an IAMSE member. 

Looking at your time with the Association, what have you most enjoyed doing? What are you looking forward to?
I have really enjoyed the webinar series. They are always well-done, accessible, and interesting! I also enjoy being a student member of the Student Professional Development Committee and am looking forward to attending my first in-person IAMSE conference (hopefully) this coming year!

What interesting things are you working on outside the Association right now? Research, presentations, etc. 
I am currently working on my dissertation research which takes a qualitative look at the relationship between medical licensure in the US and undergraduate medical education from the perspective of multiple stakeholders along the medical education continuum. 

As a graduate student, I have also created two new undergraduate courses. One focuses on science communication and the other uses medical history as a way of learning and applying current anatomical and physiological knowledge.
