  • BEST Peer Mentor
I am a junior from Ames, IA, on the Pre-Health/Human Medicine track. My career aspirations include attending medical school after my undergraduate studies and becoming a physician. I wanted to become a peer mentor for B.E.S.T because I wanted to connect with students and leave a long-lasting impact on their lives as they begin this new and exciting stage of life. I have loved being a peer mentor because it allows me to build and grow my relationships with students, other peer mentors, and the staff of the biology department. At Iowa State, I am a George Washington Carver scholar and peer mentor, NCORE-ISCORE scholar, research assistant for the Stegemoller and Riddell labs, and member of Alpha Sigma Kappa-Women in Technical Studies.

New students can ask me about joining student organizations, research, summer enrichment programs, and volunteering opportunities on and off-campus.
