Briefly tell us about yourself (e.g. hometown, family, hobbies, favorite BYU courses, intended profession)
I'm from Gilbert, AZ and studied molecular biology. I hope to be an advocate for women's health and to continue my education by becoming a nurse practitioner. I love music, baking, and I love spending time with family and friends. I loved evolutionary medicine, advanced molecular biology, pathophysiology, anatomy, comparative literature, Spanish literature, and chem 105.
Who were your greatest supporters while earning this degree?
My entire family, my husband, my in-laws, friends, and Dr. Sansom and Dr. Johnson to name a few
What advice do you have for incoming freshmen at BYU?
It's not like high school nor should it be. This is the time to try different things, meet people who you may not normally associate with, listen to opinions different than yours, and take classes outside of your comfort zone. You will never know your limits if you don't challenge yourself. I learned the most about myself during my hardest courses at BYU and I don't regret those experiences at all.
How has your experience at BYU prepared you for the rest of your life?
It's taught me to keep learning new things, to push myself to be better, and the importance of making this world a better place for our future generations.
