Why I chose ESTEEM:

I joined ESTEEM to become well-prepared to start my own business later in life.

My capstone project and why I'm excited about it:

I'm working with a group of Notre Dame professors to build a company from scratch based on their research. The product will be a therapeutic to prevent bone metastasis for people living with breast cancer.

What I hope to do after ESTEEM:

After ESTEEM, I want to work in translational research to develop my own therapeutics and spin them out into startups.

What I like to do when I'm not working:

Yoga, MMA, baking
