Tour Guide at Florida Southern College

Class of 2021

Hometown: Barrington, IL

Major: Nursing

Concentration: Nursing Informatics


Why Florida Southern?

I love the small community feel here at FSC, the abundance of opportunities to get involved, and the beautiful campus that we get to call home! I also truly believe the nursing program here is the perfect fit for me because 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. I couldn't imagine calling anywhere else home and I'm so thankful for the world class experience Florida Southern has given me for the past three years!

In my spare time I like to...

I'm an annual pass holder, so I love going to the Disney parks! I also really enjoy walking Lake Hollingsworth, exploring Lakeland, and spending time with friends! Central Florida, especially Lakeland, has truly become a second home for me the past few years and there's always something to do here in the sunshine state!

Involvement (clubs/organizations):

On campus I love being involved as President of Panhellenic Council, which is the governing body for all sororities on campus. I'm also a Resident Advisor (serving freshmen students in Wesley 2018-19, Greek Village 2019-20, and Lake Morton Apartments 2020-21), I'm a member of the Gamma Phi Beta Sorority, and I'm a Scholars Weekend Leader. Additionally, I served as a Front Desk Assistant at our Student Solutions Center for two years and a Student Development Officer for a semester. Outside of FSC, I'm a Nursing Informatics Intern at Zebra Technologies.

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

My favorite thing to do in Lakeland is grab a bite to eat with some friends! Abuelo's, Tea Largo, Patio 850, HTeaO, Born and Bread, and Palace Pizza are my absolute favorites here in Lakeland and I honestly could not recommend them enough!
