Did you enjoy your time at McDaniel? How?

I have loved my time here. It has truly been a highlight of my life. I have made amazing friends that will last a lifetime. I also have built relationships with faculty and staff members that will further me in my future.

Who do you think is/was your best mentor(s)?

I have had the opportunity to work with many role models throughout my time here. I think my advisor, Dr. McCole, has been the best mentor I could have asked for. He has helped to guide me throughout my entire college career and now my post-graduate career.

What is your best memory at McDaniel?

My fondest memory at McDaniel is probably joining my sorority. It was such an amazing experience running down the steps of the library into the arms of my sorority sisters.

What were some of the challenges you encountered and how did you overcome them?

I had bi-lateral hip surgeries the summer between my sophomore and junior year. I was in miserable pain all sophomore year leading up to the operations. It was extremely challenging to sit through my classes and even sit to do homework. My professors were extremely understanding and were immensely helpful to manage my course work.

What are your plans for after graduation?

I will be attending Arcadia University’s Doctor of Physical Therapy program come August.

What advice can you give to those not graduating?

I know everyone says this, but you don’t realize how true it is until you are leaving: savor the time you have here. Once you graduate, you won’t be right next door to your best friends anymore. You won’t be able to put off being an adult.
