2014 Kim & Ruth MacCloskey RAMI Music Scholarship

After accepting the RAMI award, I attended and graduated from Union College with a major in Biology and a minor in both Music and Economics. With my degree, I applied and was accepted into the University of Washington, Seattle campus where I am pursuing a Masters in Healthcare Administration (MHA). Thus far I have completed one of two years in the program. Additionally, I am currently interning with the Population Health department at HealthPoint which is a community health center.
