Student Leaders and Staff
St. Paul, MN
Elizabeth Gorecki is excited to be serving medical students through prayer and the great opportunities for formation and community that the CMA-SS provides! She is currently a second year medical student at the University of Minnesota –Twin Cities where she also completed her undergraduate studies. Elizabeth grew up in central Minnesota and served as a Missionary with Saint Paul’s Outreach and a Camp Counselor with Camp Wojtyla prior to entering medical school. She looks forward to building upon the great foundation that the out-going officers have created and hopes the CMA-SS can be a light and support to medical students on campuses across the country!
Sally and her ever growing pack of adopted dogs hail from the small West Texas community known as Wall. Despite growing up in the middle of a cotton field, she developed a taste for some of the finer things in life such as playing violin, baton twirling, and boxed wine. Upon completing high school, she found the only stop sign out of Wall and drove until she reached Texas Tech University. She spent 4 years there studying food science, furthering her baton twirling career with the Goin' Band from Raiderland, and attaining a second unofficial degree in Catholic Student Ministries. Upon graduation, Sally made transition to big city life in Dallas, TX to attend UT Southwestern medical school, where she is currently a 3rd year. Despite traffic, she enjoys living in Dallas and spends her free time beating friends at Just Dance, playing violin, learning more about a variety of acronyms such as TOB and NFP, and engaging in pro-lifery. She's so excited about serving the CMA-SS that some might think she has a pheochromocytoma. Her goals for the CMA-SS are to develop medical mission trips, increase opportunities to become trained in NFP, and, most importantly, encourage her fellow students to get holy or die tryin'.

Daniel Fiedorek is a second year medical student at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. He grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas, with his five siblings and graduated from the University of Dallas with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy. He joined the CMA during his first year of medical school and participated in the first CMA Medical Student Boot Camp. Daniel has not yet chosen a specialty but hopes to pursue one in Pediatrics. He looks forward to being a part of the CMA-SS leadership team and hopes that it will encourage students to deepen and live out their faith as students and in the future as physicians.
Treasurer and Communications Director
My name is Ana-Maria Dumitru, I'm currently a third year student in the MD-PhD program at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth. I grew up in Georgia, so I'm still adjusting to the New England winters, but I've really enjoyed the outdoor adventures that have come with life in New Hampshire. I've learned to count on the exciting promises God makes to each of us, plans filled with great hope for the future! I am thrilled to be taking over the role of Communications Director for this next year, and look forward to working with all of you. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, ideas, or general thoughts you might have about anything CMA-SS-related! We hope to reach out to as many students as possible this year and provide resources and support to each of you as we all journey towards the pursuit of our vocations!
My name is Elizabeth Matheson and I am incredibly blessed to be a first year medical student at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. I am from northern Ohio and attended Hillsdale College as an undergraduate. I'm not sure what specialty God is calling me to just yet, but I hope to work in international missions someday. So far during medical school I have been involved in our CMA chapter, hospital eucharistic ministry, and dancing with a small modern dance company. I will also be helping to run a local free clinic in the new year. I am very excited to be a part of the CMA-SS leadership team and to inspire other medical students to share the Gospel through healing the sick, just as Christ did.
