Hi! My name is Natalie and I’m a junior studying biology, pre-medicine, and Spanish. I hope to attend medical school and become a physician after graduating from K-State. I am primarily interested in specializing in pediatrics or women’s health in the future. One fun fact about me is that I had the opportunity to study abroad in Sevilla, Spain last summer! As a WellCAT Coach, I have a special interest in educating others about sexual health and alcohol/drug safety. Go Cats!
