Meet the Panelists

Jessica
Keck School of Medicine of University of Southern California
Jessica is a student at the USC Keck School of Medicine MD program. She will be pursuing her residency training in Psychiatry. Jessica is originally from a northern suburb of Chicago, Illinois. She graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s in Neuroscience with Honors. While at USC for her undergraduate degree, Jessica completed three years of research which culminated in an Honors Thesis titled, “Effects of Hormonal Contraception on Hippocampal Volume: A Neuroimaging Study.” After graduating, she obtained a position at the Stanford VA as the Clinical Study Coordinator for two Alzheimer’s disease-related neuroimaging studies. It was here that she discovered her love for clinical medicine and her desire to work with patients. Since beginning medical school, she has served three years on the Evaluations and Selections committee and has interviewed many aspiring Keck MD applicants. She has mentored multiple students throughout their medical school admissions process, informally as well as formally through the American Medical Women’s Association. She has also served on the board of multiple student interest groups, including Ob/Gyn, Medical Students for Choice, and Lifestyle Medicine. Her programming efforts for the latter group helped them win the Outstanding Nutrition/Culinary Programming Award at the American College of Lifestyle Medicine Conference in 2021. Jessica has also worked on several research projects while at Keck, including two studies that aimed to examine racial disparities in maternal morbidity as well as the relationship between anemia and severe maternal morbidity, as well one study that examined clinical outcomes of post-placental IUD placement in the setting of chorioamnionitis. These studies have resulted in several publications. Most recently, Jessica is working on a research study that aims to improve the treatment of depression in the primary care setting by implementing psychiatric collaborative care (PCC) conferences in a primary care clinic that serves mainly underprivileged patients. This project aims to reduce disparities in psychiatric care, a cause Jessica is very passionate about. In her free time, Jessica loves to get outside and hike/camp in the national parks of California. Jessica’s excellent communication and writing/editing skills, combined with her passion for mentorship and experience with navigating the medical school admissions process, make her a confident and capable mentor.‍
