I am a Pre-Med Anthropology major with minors in Music and Leadership Studies at Kansas State University. This may sound like a lot, but it's actually really fun and I like to stay busy! Coming into K-State, I was actually going to go into Music Education, but it wasn't for me. I impulsively picked Anthropology during my orientation and, luckily, enjoyed it. However, I decided to look into careers I could get with an Anthropology major and with a little influence from my EMT mom, I decided to go into medicine and have loved it every step of the way.

At the ACIC, I hope to help students find their direction when it comes to picking a major or career decision. While I got lucky when it came to picking a major I enjoy, I understand that it can be difficult for some and want the ACIC to be a place that alleviates and helps sort out the stress revolving around those decisions. ACIC is a place to help students, which is why I love to work there.

On campus, besides working at the ACIC, I am a student ambassador for the Leadership Studies program and for Lafene Health Center and I am a part of the Delta Chi Fraternity. I am also a member of the Collegiate Chorale, one of the University choirs. I like to stay involved on campus because I like to stay active and busy. You meet so many people and learn so many things by getting out of your comfort zone and getting involved, something I recommend for everyone to do!

At the ACIC, I hope to use me strength of Strategic. My Strategic strength allows me to find different ways to solve a problem. Every appointment at the ACIC is unique because every student and their needs are unique. Because of this, how you go about helping the student is different between each student, so it's beneficial to be able to play the situation by ear and figure out what to do based on the appointment.

All in all, I hope I get to help students because that's what I like to do! I enjoy helping students find their direction in life and pick a major that they enjoy. I want to go to med school and become a doctor after college because of that love, but for the time being, I'll enjoy the ACIC.
