Other Things: I’ve been told people think I give off the “bro” vibe when they see me before they actually meet me, but it is not true. I am actually a nerd. I also love theoretical physics, and black holes, and space. And the Silver Bullet is excellent, I don’t care what the beer snobs say.

I was born in Samara, Russia; I am one of the few international students at CUSOM. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2011, where I majored in Biochemistry and Integrative Physiology. I am thinking of going into Ophthalmology.

In my free time, I enjoy yoga, hiking, running, and spending time with my friends, my husband Darren, and our English Bulldog Bella.

Welcome to Bierstadt! My name is Caitlin and I am a small town girl, originally from Idaho Falls, Idaho. I went to undergraduate at Carroll College in Helena, MT to study biology then moved to the big city to get into medical school. When medical school is over I will be going into Pediatrics. Between rotations, I like to snuggle up at home making something crafty or baking something sweet. Otherwise, I am in love with the mountains and like to hike, camp, and showshoe. The big thing that I want you to know is that the college advisory program provides you with a ready made group of friends to identify with. Its a place for school/career advising, but also a great place to enjoy your classmates, unwind, and have fun.

​Vijay Ramakrishnan

I grew up in San Antonio and graduated from the University of Texas. I attended medical school at Baylor College of Medicine and Otolaryngology residency at the University of Colorado. After completing a fellowship in Rhinology, I now work doing mostly sinus and skull base procedures, with a number of research interests. My favorite food is pizza.
