Graduated 5/2016; Employed by Seattle Children's Hospital
Between volunteering as a candy striper and taking an anatomy class, I became interested in a career in nursing. Once I worked as a CNA, the desire was solidified.
I chose to come to the University of Wyoming since it is close to my home, has a well-known nursing program, and a solid study abroad program. Also, the University of Wyoming stood out from other universities with their Honduras nursing trip - and this is something in which I hope to participate in the future.
I applied for Aspire since it seemed like a good opportunity to get more involved in the nursing program, as well as get to know nursing professors. It will also give me a chance to learn more about the opportunities available in the nursing profession.
What does being part of Aspire mean to me? It means more opportunities, more knowledge, and better preparation.

Volunteered as a candy striper
Volunteered at Camp Elim as kitchen, dining room, and counseling staff
My work as a CNA really showed me that I love building relationships with my patients - and that I am called to work in a field where I can pour into other's lives on a personal level.
What are my aspirations? I am very interested in medical missions, as well as pediatrics and oncology. My dream internship is at Saint Jude's - and this is something I hope to do the summer before my senior year.
