My name is Rachel Wells and I am very proud to be a member of the Boone Honors Program. I am from Woolwine, Va., a small town not far from campus. I am a chemistry major with minors in art and forensic science. I am in the Rotaract Club and the Art Club. I also play intercollegiate tennis. In August 2012, I participated in the inaugural class of Freshmen Scholars, which allowed me to meet all of my current professors as well as delve into an amazing research opportunity. I hope to be a toxicologist or pharmaceutical researcher. I love the intricate details of medicine and how the chemistry of the natural and artificial elements combines to heal and help humans.
