Career GoalsI currently want to attend veterinary school after college, and hopefully become a zoo/exotics/wildlife veterinarian!
I chose to become a peer mentor because...I wanted to become a peer mentor to help guide and support students in biology, and also gain experiences along the way. I went through many ups and downs my first year of college and I would love to show students going through the same thing that everything works out.
Campus InvolvementI was able to study abroad my first year in Honduras through a Caribbean Marine Biology class, and have such a rewarding experience. I am very involved with clubs like BSC, Tri-Beta Biological Honor Society, Pre-Vet Club, and WiSE. I served as my dorm floor's treasurer and am the Fundraising Chair for Tri-Beta. I am also in a sorority, Sigma Kappa!
Students can ask me about...New students can ask me about studying abroad, greek life, study habits, and getting involved on campus!
