What is your favorite spot/thing to do in Lakeland?

My favorite spot in Lakeland is Tea Largo! Their acai bowls and smoothies are so good and going with friends is one of my favorite things to do on the weekend! Abuelo's and Palace Pizza are also great and they're where you'll find some of the best food in Lakeland!

What has been your favorite class?

My favorite class has been my Pathophysiology class because we got to learn about diseases and how to treat them in our patients. Dr. Foley is also a fantastic professor, explained the material very well, and made it relatable and easy to remember.

Why Florida Southern?

I love the small community feel at FSC, the abundance of opportunities to get involved that are offered here, and the beautiful campus that we get to call home! The nursing program is also incredible! I love all the professors in the nursing department, we experience engaged learning on a daily basis, class sizes are small, and I feel like I'm being very well prepared to dive into my field after graduation.

In my spare time I like to...

I'm an annual pass holder, so I love going to Disney! I also really enjoy walking Lake Hollingsworth, exploring Lakeland, and spending time with friends!
