Upon graduation I had an offer to work for Thermo Fisher Scientific. I am currently in a sales development program to then transition into a clinical diagnostic sales position. I actually learned about this position and got my first interview from the UA STEM career fair. I am currently training in LA and will be traveling for several months to complete several rotational projects during the program.

A wise mentor of mine told me that, "Oftentimes we are pressured to just do something, when what we really need is to take time for ourselves." So, that's what I'm currently doing: realigning my compass so to speak, and I am taking a gap year to focus on myself and travel a bit. I'm not at a prestigious job, or off saving the world (at least, not yet), and I think that's okay. Although I am unsure what the future holds, I'm sure it'll be fun.

My time at the UA has been some of my most formative years. Throughout the five years, I found a fitting career path and overcame unanticipated challenges. This fall I will attend UW in Seattle to begin a Ph.D. in Immunology.
