Jeanne Feuerstein
Jeanne Feuerstein After graduating from Oberlin in 2006, Jeanne Feuerstein moved back to San Francisco to spend a year working as a probate case clerk. Upon deciding against a profession in law, she spent the next two years in a Buddhist monastery, visiting friends, working as a volleyball coach, and volunteering at an AIDS hospice/residential facility and a clinic for young people, before eventually attending Bennington College in preparation for medical school. Jeanne followed up these classes with research at the Barrow Neurological Institute, where she focused on topics relating to blood flow in the spinal cord. She is now attending medical school at the University of Arizona. Never when she was an Oberlin student would she have expected to end up in medicine, and she is really grateful to have been able to pursue such diverse interests. Jeanne welcomes contact with any creative writing majors interested in medicine, nursing, or PA school.
