How has being a Biology graduate from Duke helped shape your professional success?

"Duke has definitely opened doors for me by facilitating interviews for other pursuits like jobs and medical school. I also had a strong biology knowledge base which made the adjustment to medical school easier."

What advice would you give students in Biology?

"I would recommend that you are open to new experiences and understand that your ideal career may evolve over time. If you are interested in medicine, start shadowing and helping with research projects early."
