Amruta Kunkur of McKinney, TX is a graduate of Rock Hill High School’s Class of 2021. A student who maintains a personal and professional passion for the STEAM subjects, Amy is pursuing an education and career in the field of psychiatry. And she is already well on her way! Currently, Amy is working closely with psychiatrist Dr. John Burruss to conduct an Independent Research Study in Psychiatry. Together, the pair are developing a formal research presentation regarding finances for mental healthcare services in the state of Texas.
Amy is passionate about dismantling the stigma surrounding mental health care. She is also dedicated to pursuing a career that fights back against the underrepresentation of women in the fields of medicine and psychiatry.
