More about me:

  • Why OSU?
    • Growing up, my entire family went to Ohio State – grandparents, parents, sister, and aunt/uncle/cousins. I felt as though OSU was home. I was intimidated by the size of the school but after finding my major, friends and cohort, I made a second family at school.
  • Advice for a new/prospective HRS student:
    • You will meet A LOT of people. Always be on your best behavior and open to listen. You never know who will be your future boss, preceptor or professor. The world of HRS is small and a close knit group of people.
