What are some of your hobbies or interests? 

I enjoy rodeoing on my horse Willis in my free time. I also enjoy traveling whenever I am given the opportunity to. 

Why do you want to be a PA? 

I have always enjoyed learning about how the human body works. It is something that was uniquely created to help us thrive throughout life. Being a PA means I get to serve others. I believe God put us on this earth to help one another. As a PA I will have the opportunity to do this, and I will constantly be motivated to expand my knowledge in order to stay up to date with medicine. 

Why did you choose Presbyterian College PA Program? 

I was told about PC by a PA I had shadowed. She explained how much she loved her time spent in Clinton. When I toured the campus I felt the small town and intimate atmosphere was a good fit for me.
