Hello! My name is Kayleigh Paddock and I am a junior at the University of Arizona studying Physiology & Medical Sciences with a minor in Biochemistry. I grew up in a small town called Tuba City, Arizona, which is located on the Navajo reservation. I have lived there my entire life, and I draw a lot of my motivation and inspiration from my community and people. With this in mind, I aspire to become a pediatrician or family doctor and enter rural medicine with the intention of serving Native people and more underrepresented and underserved populations.
In my free time, I love to cook and try new foods around Tucson! My favorite restaurant is Mi Nidito and I love grabbing coffee/tea at small cafe shops with friends. I have two support cats whom I love very much and a pug I adopted last year. Some of my hobbies include weightlifting and running.
