I graduated with a B.S. in Forensic Science with a minor in Chemistry in 2016. I was on the pre-med track and took courses that would help me in medical school, where I plan to become a forensic pathologist. I also did a summer internship at a hospital in California, which led to an internship at the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office. My internships, along with my educational experience, assisted me in becoming an autopsy technician at the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office. I also spent some time at the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension as a fingerprint examiner, which lead me to become the fingerprint trainer for the medical examiner’s office.
