Cecilia was born and raised in Fort Collins, Colorado. She completed her Bachelors in Biochemistry at Colorado State University (CSU). After a year of working in a toxicology laboratory at CSU, she went to Krakow, Poland for medical school at Jagiellonian University. She continued her medical training in family medicine at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston, Maine. She is excited to further her knowledge in geriatric care at University of Utah this year. Outside of medicine, Cecilia likes to ski, hike, and climb. She is also hoping to do more canyoneering now that she is near the desert again.
