Christy Marez

(Martin Lab) My major is biology with a biomedical concentration. I plan on pursuing a doctor’s degree in optometry because I am fascinated with the medical field and more specifically, the human eye. In my free time, I like to paint, read, play the guitar, play soccer, or even go on a run. I enjoy going on a walk or hike to simply contemplate on nature, but I also appreciate being a part of a loud and lively get-together with family and friends.
