Year at UW: Third

Hometown: Honolulu

Gender: female

About me: Hey there! My name is Kaitlyn (Katie) Tom and I am a junior at the UW. Originally from Honolulu, Hawaii, coming to Seattle and becoming a part of the Honors and broader UW community has been one of the best decisions that I have ever made. I am currently a General Biology major and hope to pursue a career in dentistry after I graduate. Outside of schoolwork, I currently volunteer at the UW Medical Center within the Arts in Healing Program and am an active member of various pre-health, service, and outdoors clubs on campus. For the past two years I have also been conducting a literature review on local anesthesia in dentistry. If you want to know more about pre-health courses, research, volunteering, the Honors Program, UW student life, or have any other questions, feel free to contact me! I will be more than happy to answer any questions that you might have!
