Bio: tell us about yourself
Hi guys! My name is Lexi Ruppel, and I am an M4. I am originally from Alpharetta, GA and went on to get my undergraduate degrees from UGA (go Dawgs!). After that I spent two years at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD working on phase I HIV vaccine clinical trials and eventually the Moderna COVID vaccine. During my time up in the D.C. area I also got my masters in Health Administration through LSU online. Finally I ended back down in the peach state to start medical school at MCG. In my free time I love attending UGA football games and tailgates, eating oysters and drinking wine at SeaBear on Prince Ave., and taking my two dogs, Reign and Noble on trails around Athens!
