What drew you to nursing?

I have always been interested in the medical field. But in my junior year of high school, I participated in a nurse and nurse practitioner internship and was completely convinced it was the path for me. I believe nurses can provide care that is very impactful, and I can't wait to be one myself.

What drew you to UW?

Being accepted as a freshman admit to the nursing program caused me to become very excited about attending the University of Wyoming. I also enjoyed the idea of being relatively close to home compared to the other colleges I was considering.

What drew you to Aspire?

The Aspire program seemed like a great opportunity to become involved in the nursing community at the university while strengthening my leadership and professional skills at the same time. I enjoyed being a part of groups, teams and clubs in high school, and Aspire is allowing me to continue this involvement in college.

Aspirations for College and Beyond

My future aspirations include graduating with my BSN and a minor in nutrition. Afterwards, I plan on working as a traveling nurse to explore new places and explore different nursing careers. After a few years, I hope to return to school to become a nurse practitioner. I am ecstatic about my education here at the University of Wyoming and enthusiastic about my future career..
