1. Tell us about your journey since graduation.
Since graduating from GVSU in 2014, I attended graduate school at the University of Findlay in Ohio to obtain my Master of Physician Assistant degree. I graduated from the program in December 2019 and am now a nationally certified PA licensed to practice in the state of Michigan. After graduating, I married my husband, Aaron, and we spend much of our downtime on home renovations, hiking, and enjoying time with our family and friends in West Michigan.

2. Share a favorite Grand Valley memory.
My favorite memories of GVSU are living in the Honors College dorms my freshmen year and all the new, lasting friendships I developed while living there, leading the Future Alumni Association and attending the CASE ASAP Conference at MSU with the e-board members, and the Toast with T. Haas during my graduating year.

3. What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?
Listen more than you speak.

4. List three words you would use to describe your Grand Valley experience.
Community. Leadership. Fun.

5. What difference would you like to make in the world?
I hope to help people live healthy, fulfilling, and connected lives through my career as a healthcare professional, involvement with different organizations, and volunteer opportunities.
