How has HPAO helped you on your pre-health journey? The HPAO office has helped me decide the path I wanted to pursue after undergrad and made sure that I had all the resources in order to do so. They have also encouraged me to take on various internship and research positions that propelled my undergrad career and resume.

What is your most memorable HPAO experience? My most memorable experience was when I called Mrs. Kelli crying because I was unsure about my classes and doubted myself. No matter what time it was, if she was available, she picked up and helped me sort through my problems and provided me with encouraging words.

What are your career goals? I want to eventually become a Nurse anesthesiologist (CRNA) and also expand my real estate portfolio.
