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

When I toured OSU I immediately felt at home and I'm so glad I decided to be a beaver! When I was exploring the different majors, kinesiology always stood out to me as the professors showed so much passion for what they were teaching.

I found that I loved learning about the human body and how it functions and heals, leading me to choose the pre-physical therapy track with my major. Now that I am finishing up, I have no doubt I chose the right path for myself!

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

My experience at OSU turned out to be everything I had hoped for in a college experience. All my professors made my classes fun and helped me love what I was learning. Support from my family and friends helped keep me motivated to be successful while also reminding me to enjoy my time here and have fun!

What are your post-college dreams/plans?

I am attending the University of Puget Sound in the fall to get my Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree!
