Spencer is entering his second year at the University of Colorado Boulder. He is seeking a double major in Integrative Physiology and Philosophy. In his first year, he participated in Air Force ROTC, an arts and science program, and took on 19 credits his second semester, all while keeping a high GPA. Spencer is keeping an open mind as he explores different careers in medicine but eventually would like to work in a developing country. The opportunity to meet and learn from students and health care providers from all walks of life, as well as the professional environment drove him to apply to UPP. In his community, he has served as a volunteer Paralympics coach for the Boulder Expand program as well as a volunteer at a local retirement home. In his free time, Spencer enjoys hiking, climbing, chasing deer up mountains, and drinking coffee. Spencer is extremely grateful to be a part off UPP and hopes to take full advantage of the opportunity.
