What is your favorite FSC memory?

I have so many favorite memories at FSC! Every scholars weekend I've been able to serve as a scholars weekend leader has been such a privilege and I truly enjoy helping prospective students find their home here. I absolutely love Greek life events like big/little reveals, bid days, recruitment, formals and semi-formals, philanthropy events, mixers, and so many more! I love getting to help grow my Greek community and serving as the 2020 Panhellenic President has been my absolute favorite part of my college experience! I also couldn't imagine my time here without the people I've met who have been apart of these special memories like my Panhellenic sisters, the wonderful RAs on my team every year, the other Southern Ambassadors I've given tours with, the inspiring faculty, and so many more Mocs who have made FSC feel like home!

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 these past few years and there's always something to do here in the sunshine state!

Involvement (clubs/organizations):

On campus I loved being involved as the 2020 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 Area Houses 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 and I'm a Student Nurse Intern at Advent-Health Sebring's ER.

What has been your favorite class?

My favorite class so far has been my Adult Health Nursing Care II class because this class truly taught me how to think like a nurse. While learning about various acute illnesses that widely affect the adult population, we learned how to think critically, prioritize patient-centered care, and develop our clinical reasoning skills. My professor for the course, Dr. Radecki, is also one of the best professors I've ever had. She's so passionate about teaching and I felt truly cared about as a person and as a student in her class.
