Jeremy hails from Tallahassee, Florida, about as far away from the beach as you can be while still being in Florida. He completed his undergrad at the University of Virginia where he was a Jefferson Scholar and majored in biology and public policy & leadership at the Frank Batten School. After graduation, he moved further north to begin medical school at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania as a Perelman Scholar. In between, Jeremy worked for the U.S. Senate Finance Committee, supporting efforts to protect the Affordable Care Act. His interest in broader questions pertaining to health care delivery have also led him to pursue a joint MD/MBA in Health Care Management at Wharton.
Jeremy has long had a strong interest in peer teaching and coaching. In undergrad, he ran a large service-learning organization with over 300 members. Now, in medical school, he is a paid peer tutor for preclinical coursework, a near-peer mentor for the pediatrics clerkship, and helps run differential diagnosis workshops to help junior students develop clinical acumen. He also has significant experience helping coach others through college coursework as well as MCAT, GMAT, and SAT test prep. In efforts to further advance his skills as a teacher, he is currently completing a certificate in medical education which includes a two-week intensive course focused on developing effective pedagogical strategies.
Outside of academics, Jeremy can be found exploring Philadelphia cuisine, trying new recipes, laughing at dog memes, or participating in CrossFit/training for his next half-marathon or mud run.
