Hello, my name is Kaitlyn Leahey and I am an undergraduate student at the Pennsylvania State University and a member of the Schreyer Honors College. I am a Biology major with a minor in Bioethics and Medical Humanities. Ever since high school, I have been fascinated by how the human body works and how medial professionals are able to identify and treat disease. Because of this I hope to have a future in medicine or scientific research.
In addition to my passion for medicine and helping others, I have a love for writing and natural living. I grew up in California in a very environmentally conscious setting and because of this I enjoy sharing with others information about natural health and sustainability. Ultimately, I want to use my passion for natural health not only to help patients heal themselves, but to improve their quality of life. This is why many of the topics that I have written on reflect these interests. Educating others and sharing a bit of myself is part of my goal for creating a healthier world.
