I graduated from Ferrum College and the Boone Honors Program in 2014 with a BS
in Pre-Professional Sciences and Biology, with a minor in chemistry. I was heavily
involved with many clubs and organizations on campus during my four years there
including: independent research, Honors Advisory Council, Admissions
Ambassadors, Admissions Bloggers, Minds N’ Medicine, PAL tutors, Tri-Beta, Ferrum
Greek Council, and Bible studies to name a few. Most notably I was heavily involved
with Mu Sigma Chi and I served as the president for my last two years at Ferrum.
Immediately after graduating Ferrum College, I was accepted into Virginia-Maryland
College of Veterinary Medicine’s dual degree (Ph.D./D.V.M.) program at Virginia Tech. I am currently in my third year of completing a Ph.D. in Infectious Diseases and Immunology. I will matriculate into the D.V.M. curriculum with the class of 2021 with the hope of starting a Food Animal track and obtaining an M.P.H. I ultimately look to work for the Center for Diseases Control and Prevention in an infectious disease surveillance program, while being involved in private practice.
My years at Ferrum College greatly influenced me and set me on my current path. The priceless relationships and networks created through Ferrum faculty and students still are valuable assets to this day. As an alumni of Ferrum College and the Boone Honors Program I can attest to the close knit community built by the school, and ask that you do not hesitate to contact me.
