Bachelor of Science, Medical Laboratory Science
Briefly tell us about yourself (e.g. hometown, family, hobbies, favorite BYU courses, intended profession)
I grew up all across the U.S but living here in Provo for college makes me want to call this place home. I was able to attend BYU with my two siblings and I also met my husband, Max, and for that I am forever grateful. I enjoy rock climbing and baking, although never at the same time. My favorite classes at BYU outside of the MLS major requirements were classes in the school of Family Life. I was able to gain so many skills and mindsets about family and the gospel that I truly feel that I received a well-rounded education at BYU. After graduation, I hope to gain employment at a hospital laboratory performing tests in microbiology, hematology, blood bank, urinalysis, and much more. I also strive to become a mother and do cool science experiments with my kids one day!

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