Tatiana Cubillos was born and raised in northern New Jersey. In 2019, she graduated from Ramapo College of New Jersey with a B.S. in Biology. During her undergraduate career, Tatiana worked as an Emergency Medical Technician for two years. Working as an EMT solidified her desire to work in the healthcare field, but she was still not exactly sure where she fit in. Finally, after taking Anatomy and Histology during her senior year, Tatiana realized that the laboratory beautifully combines her love for science, art, and patient care. She discovered the pathologists’ assistant profession after some research and had the opportunity to shadow a few pathologists’ assistants. After graduating from RCNJ, she continued to work as an EMT during the COVID pandemic, and then went on to work as a Medical Laboratory Technician at a COVID testing laboratory. Tatiana is proud to be part of the second cohort of Tulane’s Pathologists’ Assistant program and is excited to begin the journey she was meant to take. In her free time, she enjoys watching horror movies, traveling, drawing, napping, eating, and more eating.
