Christine, 49ers Gold Rush:
Tenure: Three Years
Day Job: PhD Candidate and Researcher
Christine is a student of science-related things that most of us couldn’t even begin to understand, so I’ll spare you the details. Unfortunately, that leaves us short on details. Her “fun fact” is that she is both blonde and Hispanic and has second cousins in Mexico.
Scientists have a different idea of “fun,” apparently.
- Occupation: PhD Candidate & Researcher
- Tenure: 3
- Education: I graduated with Bachelors and Masters degrees in Biomedical Engineering. Currently, I am studying for my doctorate (PhD) in Bioengineering with a minor through the MBA program in Management of Technology.
- Career Goal: I am torn between two goals. The first is to start a medical imaging company centered on cancer diagnostics. The second is to lead a lab in academia, which would focus on the two of the great challenges in cancer treatment, early diagnosis and early assessment of response to therapy.
- Biggest thrill: My biggest thrill this past year would be the closing moments of the 49ers versus Saints game during the second to last playoff game. Alex Smith threw a game-winning touchdown pass to Vernon Davis with 9 seconds left on the clock sending us to a home NFC championship game. I had every emotion, fear, excitement, sadness, and joy, all within that last 60 seconds. I had goose bumps as the crowd was going wild. The fans were like a red sea, and I was one the field, right there in the middle of all of it. That was pretty amazing.
- Fun fact: Even though I am blonde, I am Hispanic. My grandpa moved here from Mexico before my uncles were born. I have several second cousins in Zacatecas, Mexico.
Something worth fighting for: Your dreams, what you believe in, family, true love, and happiness.
Favorite Song or anthem of your life: “Love Like Crazy” by Lee Brice because it reminds me of what is important in life.
