Tour Guide at Florida Southern College

Class of 2020

Hometown: Stillwater, MN

Major: Nursing


What has been your favorite class?

My favorite class at FSC has been Adult Health 1. In this class, we learned about the anatomy and physiology of different body systems and as nurses how to differentiate normal and abnormal changes that can occur to these systems. There was also a lab and clinical portion to this class, which allowed us to learn skills such as starting IVs and inserting urinary catheters and apply those skills to real-life patients at Lakeland Regional Hospital. As a sophomore taking this class, it allowed me to learn and utilize everyday nursing skills early on in my education.

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

My favorite thing to do in Lakeland is to attend free yoga classes on Lake Hollingsworth! YLakeland organizes the event and it is a great way to relax and spend time outdoors after a busy week.

What is your favorite FSC memory?

My favorite FSC memory has been my junior journey tip abroad! I traveled throughout the British Virgin Islands on a power catamaran and studied the coral reefs and cultures on the islands. We also helped restore damage caused by Hurricane Irma by replanting palm trees along the beach. We spent our days swimming in the crystal clear ocean, snorkeling through caves, and hiking and exploring the islands. My junior journey allowed me to get to know students from other majors at FSC as well as explore the world. It was an incredible experience that I will never forget!

In my spare time I like to...

In my spare time I like to swim at the pool, run around the beautiful Lake Hollingsworth, or attend free workout classes lead by FSC students! I also enjoy attending campus events such as Winter Wonderland, Southern Takeover, and Farewell Festival!
