Tegan Feret was born in Michigan and spent her early life growing up in Aurora, CO. Since a young age, she was always conscious of an affinity for both the scientific and creative endeavors. Born the daughter of both a nurse and a physician, Tegan inherited her parent’s inclination toward healthcare and the world of medicine. She completed her Bachelor’s of Science in Biology at the University of Colorado Denver with the intent of pursuing medical school. While in undergrad, Tegan interned at the University of Colorado Hospital in the Department of Surgical Pathology where she first learned about the field of Pathology. Questioning her original plans, she continued to work in the lab after completing her bachelor’s and soon discovered a career path with the potential to merge both of her passions. When other impassioned pathologists’ assistants encouraged her to apply to the emerging program at Tulane, she was convinced that this was an opportunity she had to take. Beyond her studies, Tegan is a novice drummer and proficient pianist who creates graphite drawings, spray paintings, loves seafood and her motorcycle.
