Bachelor of Science, Medical Laboratory Science


Briefly tell us about yourself (e.g. hometown, family, hobbies, favorite BYU courses, intended profession)

I'm from Gilbert, Arizona, but I consider South Jordan, Utah my hometown. My family lives close-by and seeing them every Sunday for family dinner is always the highlight of my week. I've been married to my best friend, Sam, for almost two years now! I love rock climbing, hiking, camping, and just being outside. I really enjoyed all of my science pre-requisite classes at BYU, but especially Chem 105 with Dr. Rebecca Sansom. The Medical Laboratory Science program at BYU is phenomenal, I learned so much and truly loved every minute of it. I intend to become a certified Medical Laboratory Scientist and I'm so grateful for all the knowledge, friendships, and opportunities I gained at BYU that helped me get to where I am today.

Who were your greatest supporters while earning this degree?

My mom and dad- David and Julie Springer, and my husband Sam.

What advice do you have for incoming freshmen at BYU?

You are capable of more than you know. Even when you feel inadequate, keep going and believing in yourself and always strive for more. You can literally do anything and be anyone you want to be.

How has your experience at BYU prepared you for the rest of your life?

My time at BYU has blessed me with a passion for learning and greater confidence in my ability to accomplish things that I set my mind to, as well as connections and relationships with others that made the journey so much fun, and that I get to keep forever. The skills I gained during my program have prepared me well for my future career in Medical Laboratory Science.
