I took some Anthropology courses as an undergrad and then had Medical Anthropology as part of my MA curriculum. I intended to pursue a PhD in Anthropology, but, as John Lennon pointed out, “Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans.” I got back on track this year with courses in Linguistics and Cultural Anthropology, and I am thrilled to be in the Ethnology Proseminar this semester.
