MEET THE TRESURER
Hello!  My name is Katelyn, and I am honored to be serving as the treasurer this year.  I am currently a junior at the University of Notre Dame and I aspire to be an intensive care pediatrician.  I have been a part of AMWA both nationally and on my campus since my freshman year and it has created some incredible opportunities for me.  One of the highlights of my AMWA experience was attending the conference in Chicago last year.  It was inspirational to be surrounded by so many successful female doctors and aspiring students.  I have also enjoyed becoming a part of the South Bend health community through the AMWA branch at Notre Dame.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or requests at premedtreasurer@amwa-student.org.  Can’t wait to work with you this year!
