(Barrott Lab) I am a student studying Human Biology and BYU-Idaho. I hope is to advance into the medical field by advancing into medical school next year. With the spare time I do have, I enjoy being with my wife. We enjoy doing a lot of things together, including riding bikes, hiking, camping, playing board games, and watching our favorite television shows. My greatest interest in school so far has been the study of pathophysiology.
