Victoria (Tori) McDonald
Region 9 Director
Tori McDonald (she/her) is a medical student at Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences. She was the founding member of her AMWA chapter at the University of Portland and was able to bring several of AMWA’s initiatives to fruition in the Portland area. She started the Pilots Matter, Period petition on her campus in undergraduate and presented the HPV and Cervical Cancer Prevention lesson to several middle school classes. Tori was also an ambassador for the MWIA Centennial Conference in New York where she connected with several AMWA leaders. While in medical school, she has remained an active member of AMWA by being a part of her Women in Medicine Club at PNWU and by participating in the National Mentorship Program. As a first-generation medical student and health care professional, her hope is to provide resources to those navigating the medical admissions process on their own.
Throughout her work and education, she has developed her passion for youth education and women’s health and works hard to improve the lives of the communities that she is a part of. Outside of school, work and volunteering, she enjoys cooking, baking, watching movies and spending time outside with her friends and family.
