Amy loves research and science and has been involved in numerous basic and clinical research projects in dermatology, medical education, and diabetes, all of which have lead to first-author publications. Outside of medicine, she loves watching movies, checking out new restaurants, and traveling.
Test Preparation“Karina was an excellent match in every way. She knew the material cold as she is a biologist and she also knew what would be expected on the AP exam as she teaches the class. Furthermore, she was dedicated to making sure C. learned the material and was encouraging and sweet. I cannot say enough good things about Karina.”
