Allison Pennington

Biochemistry Peer Mentor

Hello! My name is Allison Pennington. I am a senior from Virginia Beach majoring in Biochemistry and minoring in Japanese. I plan on going into the medical field after gradaution, with the intent to become a family physician. 

I am involved in several organizations both on and off campus. I am the president of the Biochemistry club (which you should totally join) and have been doing research for the Brown Lab. In my free time, I am usually hiking, gaming, or hunting for vinyls.

My best piece of advice would be to get out of your comfort zone and to pursue the opportunities presented to you. It is just as important to find out what you don't like as it is to find out what you enjoy.

I always enjoy meeting new Biochemistry majors, so feel free to email me anytime with questions regarding pre-health, research, or anything college related!
