Why did you decide to pursue this health profession?  The PA profession is admirable to me because of the incredible opportunities, great responsibilities, and large flexibility that it offers. 

 What is your major and why did you choose it?  I am Biology and Spanish double major. Both subjects have also been favorites of mine, largely due to the inspiration of my incredible Biology and Spanish professors in high school.  

How has the HPAO helped you?  The HPAO has helped guide my course schedule throughout each year of college and given me the confidence I need to be successful in my classes.

What is your favorite meal in Oxford? Walnut and goat cheese salad from Volta.

What are you happiest doing when not working or studying? I am happiest enjoying a yummy meal with friends.
