Sunshine "Sunny" Gibson, MSW
Ms. Gibson has taught at several conferences around the country about various aspects of preparation for medical school, including personal statements, secondary applications, interviewing skills, tips & advice, and more. Through her service on national committees, she has collected and organized an impressive volume of information for prospective students. She considers herself a passionate ally and advocate for underrepresented students pursuing medical careers and especially loves helping students tell their stories through the personal statement. Ms. Gibson intends to be a powerful voice for access, diversity and inclusion in education, so she is currently completing her doctorate in Higher Education.
Ms. Munoz has served students at Feinberg since 2005 and continues to love her post. She enjoys supporting students and watching them grow and change throughout medical school. The students know her as one of the most helpful and friendly people at Feinberg. A native of Chicago, Ms. Munoz grew up on the southeast side of the city and currently calls the east side home. Her goal is to continue working with students in higher education, so she began a master's program in the fall of 2010.
