I am a junior in the College of Agriculture, Health, and Natural Resources (CAHNR), majoring in allied health sciences. I plan on applying to physical therapy school soon so that I can attend a program once I graduate from UConn. Being part of the pre-physical therapy society here on campus has provided much needed guidance for me as I’ve navigated through pre-requisite courses, as well as internships at inpatient and outpatient settings. Furthermore, I have had experiences in senior living communities as a volunteer, and pharmaceuticals as a pharmacy technician for over four years. I am looking forward to being involved with UConn and the outside community as a CAHNR ambassador this year and hope to offer direction to prospective students and give the kind of advice that I sought when I was in their position.

Three Pieces of Advice:
- Get involved on campus. It is an easy way to make new friends and feel more at home at the university.
- Be organized. It is not hard to get caught up with work in classes as well as life outside of classes. Stay on top of assignments and build a routine to avoid getting too overwhelmed.
- Enjoy the moment. College really does go by fast. Appreciate the good and bad, in all aspects. Experiences develop the promising individual you were meant to be.
