Before Med School
Lots of odd jobs and manual labor positions. Worked at a soup factory, a non-profit organization which ran urban exposure trips in Chicago, I coached an electric wheelchair soccer team and volunteered my time at a local bike park building dirt jumps and a pump track. I also raced XC mountain bikes, skied as much as I could, bouldered quite a bit and did some traveling.
