While earning my degree, my greatest supporters were

My parents, my little brother, my family, my friends, my teammates, my professors, and my coaches. Each of these people were influential and supportive when I was questioning my path and they showed me that I had the strength and capability to continue working towards my future. I would like to especially thank my family for all the sacrifices they have made that allowed this to become a reality.

My favorite SMC memory is

All of the nights my roommates and I have stayed up talking, laughing, and reminiscing with candlelight or moonlight lighting up our faces. From sitting out on our deck having a candle-light dinner to sitting in the back of our friend's truck during the power outages and seeing shooting stars. These and others are the memories that I will carry with me as I move forward in life.

I'm looking forward to most

I am looking forward to continuing my education in graduate school and eventually becoming a Nurse Practitioner working in Public health.
