Tour Guide at Florida Southern College
Class of 2019
Hometown: Stillwater, MN
Although I have made many great memories throughout my time at Florida southern, my Junior Journey to the British Virgin Islands led to some fantastic experiences. During the trip, we lived on a Power Catamaran, yachted around to various islands, learned about the island culture, snorkeled in the crystal clear water, and planted trees to help contribute to the restoration of Virgin Gorda post Hurricane Irma. It was an incredible adventure and I am grateful to have had the opportunity!
I chose to attend Florida Southern College because of the excellent programs it has for students. The Junior Journey travel program is great because it gives every student the opportunity to study abroad. Florida Southern's Nursing program stands out from other schools as the direct entry into their program allows the students to begin clinical rotations their sophomore year. These two programs along with the friendly campus environment and academic success are why I chose to attend Florida Southern College.
I am a member of Sigma Theta Tau National Honor Society of Nursing, National Student Nurses’ Association, National Society of Leadership and Success, Society of Collegiate Leadership and Achievement, and Greek life. Additionally, I am the Treasurer of Phi Eta Sigma Honor Society and the Constituency Chair for FSC’s Student Nurses’ Association.
Traveling is one of my favorite hobbies! I love the adrenaline rush that comes when exploring a new place and experiencing the different cultures of the world. When I am not traveling or planning my next vacation, I can be found at the pool or the beach as I love swimming and being in the water.
