After graduating, I hope to work as an RN in an emergency room or primary care office/clinic.
I love the fact that professors know me by name. I have made more connections with faculty and staff members at D'Youville than I have fingers and toes. I also enjoy the fact that once you are accepted at D'Youville, you are accepted into the nursing major.
From the first time I stepped on campus for a Discovery Days program, I felt as though the school spoke to me in a special way. The instant scholarships made the private education more affordable, and that, coupled with an outstanding reputation in the nursing field, pretty much sealed the deal for me.
After graduating, I hope to work as an RN in an emergency room or primary care office/clinic while going to school (likely at D'Youville) to get my master's degree and become a family nurse practitioner.
D'Youville gives me the opportunity to explore all of my interests inside the classroom and outside as well. Despite being a small school, there are so many opportunities to learn and grow.
I have been involved very heavily with Campus Ministry. I do my work-study in the office, and have also organized intercollegiate retreats and programming. I planned and led our alternative spring break service trip to Pittsburgh, Pa. and will take part in our annual service trip to New Orleans. I'm president of the Campus Community Club and editor of the school newspaper, the Catalyst. I was the 2010 most improved player on the tennis team and am a proud supporter of D'Youville athletics.
Expects to graduate in 2012
