Hello! I am a 22 year-old senior at the University of Wisconsin-Madison majoring in Biological Aspects of Conservation. I will be graduating in December and I hope to get into the Rural Medicine Program at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health.
I have lived in Wisconsin all my life and have enjoyed a mixed experience of rural and urban perspectives. What I call home is the Kickapoo River Valley in the "Driftless" area of southwestern Wisconsin. It is unique in its geography in that glaciers never flattened the landscape of hills, bluffs and valleys.
