What inspired or interested you about your field of study? And why did you choose OSU/the college?

When I tore my ACL, I thought my life was over. My surgeon, athletic trainer, physical education teacher and physical therapist inspired me to purse kinesiology.

Tell us about your time at Oregon State and in the college. Is there someone or something who/that helped you be successful?

My time at OSU has been hard, but good at the same time. My favorite professor is Jennifer Beamer. She is amazing and made me fall in love with the IMPACT program.

What are your post-college dreams/plans?

I hope to get my masters in adapted physical education within the next couple of years. In the future, I want to work with individuals with disability.

Anything else you'd like to add?

My advice is to believe in yourself and ask for help when you need it!
