Favorite and/or most impactful course

Medical Ethics has had the biggest impact on me because it reaffirmed that I was studying two fields that interested me and intersected a lot in the real world. One of the classes that I enjoyed most was my Metaphysics class because it is very fascinating even if it makes my head hurt sometimes.

Research or internship experience

I have worked in the SARS-CoV-2 lab and a bacteriology lab both within the NVDC on east campus. Both are diagnostic labs but one works with viral Covid spit samples and the other works with samples from animals to determine what bacteria has infected them.

Other involvement

I am a member of Pi Kappa Alpha.

Why you chose Nebraska

I chose UNL because it is close to home and has great academics for the field that I'm interested in.
