Jamee Schoephoerster- 2020 Climb4KC Scholar

“Jamee grew up in the Mound, MN attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison majoring in Biology and Environmental Sciences with a Mathematics minor. She spent her gap year conducting cardiovascular research and providing counseling services through the Rape Crisis Center in Dane county. She enjoys spending time outside and hopes to spend many nights sleeping under the stars this summer. Her pediatrician was one of the sources of her encouragement and interest in medicine growing up. Her interest in nephrology was sparked by shadowing a pediatric nephrologist at UW-Madison, where she witnessed how intricate the kidneys are in other body systems’ physiology. She hopes to give physicians and patients more insight into their disease and options through conducting research with Dr. Weight.”
