What activities and organizations were you involved in as an undergraduate?

PrePA Club

What did you do after you graduated?

I worked as a medical assistant at a pain management clinic in my hometown for about a year.

If you’ve done any volunteer work, please list what you’ve done and where.

I volunteered at a tutoring facility for first-generation Hispanic children, helping them with homework and other activities. I also volunteered at a women’s clinic in Cusco, Peru for ten weeks immediately following graduation.

How or why did you become involved in this volunteer work?

I learned about the Peru opportunity through my teachers in undergraduate. There had been several students who had taken this trip and volunteered before, and they absolutely loved it. I was really interested in continuing my Spanish language skills and thought that Peru would be a great learning environment for both my Spanish and medical assistant goals.

What are some of your hobbies or interests?

I have a pony named Ariel that I love to go out and ride whenever I can! I also love camping, hiking, or anything outdoors.

Why do you want to be a PA?

I want to provide quality healthcare on a very personal and connected level. I feel like the PA profession is perfect for this and I think that my public health background will help me be an effective and educated health care provider.

Why did you choose the Presbyterian College PA Program?

My mom is a PC alum, and the experience as a whole was so special. She came with me to my interview, and I fell in love with the college just like she had when she was my age.
