Student Division Conference Co-Chair
Keri Jones grew up on a small farm in Mississippi, so she happens to know a little more about tractors and the birthing habits of cattle than the next person. However, she found her passion for people to be as strong as her passion for animals and decided to pursue a career in the medical field pretty early on. During her undergraduate career, she served as a resident advisor, cabinet member in the Student Association, among other roles that allowed her to plan large events, coordinate committees, and serve her undergraduate community. She graduated from Mississippi State University with degrees in Biological Sciences and Kinesiology and is currently a second year medical student at the Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine. She is currently interested in a career in academic medicine and intends to obtain a master’s degree in the future to supplement her research interests and practice. She also hopes to become involved in pipeline or mentoring programs for underrepresented groups or young women in medicine during residency, fellowship, and beyond.
