Viemma

Bio

Viemma attended Rutgers University-New Brunswick for her undergraduate schooling, where she received her Bachelor of Science degree. She double majored in Public Health and Biological Sciences, graduating summa cum laude. During her time there, she was granted membership into the Alpha Epsilon Delta National Prehealth Honor Society and the Eta Sigma Gamma National Health Education Honorary. Towards the end of her sophomore year, she was one of two students to receive the Roger Sweet Memorial Award for Excellence in Organic Chemistry. She’s received several other awards based on her academic merit and contributions to her school community. Viemma followed the “traditional” route and matriculated into medical school immediately after undergrad. She attended Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, obtaining her Doctor of Medicine degree, and is now in General Surgery residency at New York Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center.

Her teaching experiences over the course of her undergraduate career are plentiful. In college, she was a peer tutor for General Physics and Organic Chemistry which allowed her to facilitate student success and resolve immediate academic crisis in these subject areas while simultaneously being enrolled in these courses. She became a teaching fellow for General Chemistry and continued her service as a tutor (scheduled one-on-one appointments) and supplemental instructor (group learning sessions) until graduation. Additionally, she was a supplemental instructor for Organic Chemistry and continued this until the summer after graduation.  Viemma goes above and beyond to get her students to love the sciences which she believes is essential to understanding.

In her free time, Viemma loves to play her cello. She was classically trained 8-years-old to 17-years-old.
