Who: Stanley Quan

Year Graduated: 2007

Where are you now?
I studied Business Administration and Public Health at UC Berkeley and then moved to Madison, Wisconsin a little over two years ago.

What do you enjoy?
Personally, I enjoy staying active, playing sports, and exploring new cities. Professionally, I want to improve patient care in the healthcare industry and help shape how it looks in the future.

What did you do in high school?
I tried to have a hand in lots of things during my time at San Mateo. I was Managing Editor/Editor-in-Chief for the Hi, President of the Orchestra, a captain on the cross country team, and part of the math team.

What are you doing now?
I work as a Project Manager/Implementation Consultant for Epic Systems, a leading electronic medical records company.

What surprised you about life after high school?
High school is pretty small in the grand scheme of things. Going to college at a large UC and moving to the Midwest gave me a lot more perspective and really made me learn who I am. If you ever get a chance to jump outside your comfort zone, do it.

Words of Wisdom for current Bearcats?
Through all of our experiences, I think we should always strive to learn to become better people. Live to learn. Learn to live. Empathy helps a lot. One of my favorite quotes is by Confucius: “Wherever you go, go with all your heart.”
