OUR TEAM

OUR HISTORY

We are originally four medical students attending the University of Utah School of Medicine. We love Anki, but found it very difficult to use at first. We originally made a few videos to help our classmates and eventually decided to keep making tutorials so we could share with all Anki users worldwide. Many of us are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and all of us believe that serving others is what brings true happiness. We hope you enjoy everything we have put together for you!

I’ve had an intense interest in both medicine and education technology for the past eight years since discovering Anki and flirting with the idea of going to medical school. I am currently a software engineer working in healthcare technology and am reconsidering medical school after feeling inspired again from my experience starting Anki Palace and AnkiHub. I previously provided technical support to Fluent Forever Anki users and have used Anki extensively to study pre-med, music, computer science, and Dutch. I am extremely excited about the potential of education technology to improve the lives of students all around the world!
