Devon Z.


Devon grew up in Montana, surrounded by the Rockies, and left them for the foothills of California and Stanford University where she majored in human biology.  After Stanford, she spent a gap year applying to medical school, volunteering at Yosemite National Park's medical clinic, and hiking and cross country skiing as much as possible.  Trading in her hiking boots and skis, she is now a first year medical student at NYU Grossman School of Medicine, where she is involved in infectious disease research, is developing a book club for medical students, and volunteers as a doula.

Devon tutored regularly in high school and worked as a course assistant and teaching assistant for an advanced virology course in college.  With a passion for the art and science of medicine, she relishes sharing and explaining the awe inherent in medicine and hopes to get you excited about embarking on the path to medical school by tackling the MCAT.  An avid reader, she especially enjoys helping others work through and understand the CARS section.

When not studying or attempting to decipher how and when to cross NYC crosswalks, Devon can be found exploring the area’s best bakeries, exploring the green spaces around NYC, and discussing the most recent episode of Survivor.
