Briefly tell us about yourself (e.g. hometown, family, hobbies, favorite BYU courses, intended profession)
I grew up in Oregon City, OR with my five younger siblings and lovely parents. My five years at BYU were filled with self-discovery and learning. I learned to love running, canyoneering, and climbing. I met my husband my junior year and married him almost two years later. That same year, I discovered the MLS program and fell in love with it’s combination of hematology, microbiology, and chemistry. I plan to use my lab degree at Primary Children’s Hospital before going to PA school to further my education.
Who were your greatest supporters while earning this degree?
I have been blown away by the MLS professors and the trust and faith they have in their students. They are people I look up to and who push me to be better. I’ve also had immense support from roommates, friends, study groups, my parents, my husband, and of course, the LSB vending machines.
What advice do you have for incoming freshmen at BYU?
Don’t worry about picking a major! As you pick classes that interest you and talk to people about their careers, your path will lay itself out before you.
How has your experience at BYU prepared you for the rest of your life?
BYU has taught me about the importance of hard work and consistency. I’ve learned how to incorporate spirituality into my everyday life and how to serve better and serve smarter.
