During my time as an undergraduate, I majored in Biology with a minor in neuroscience. I spent my time volunteering at New Beginnings Therapeutic Riding, coaching for the Bowling Green Special Olympics Swim Team, working as a teaching assistant and biology ambassador within the biology department, and participating in greek life as a member of Chi Omega. Through these experiences as well as working as a physical therapy technician at KORT physcial therapy, I decided to pursue occupational therapy as a career. Helping others learn the skills they need to be capable of doing what they love is what I have found a passion for. My younger brother, who has a rare developmental disorder called Cornelia De Lange syndrome, has been my inspiration for my studies and I hope to play a part in improving the quality of life for those with disabilities in the future. In fall of 2022, I will begin the doctor of occupational therapy program at Washington University School of Medicine in Saint Louis.
