I attended Fraser High School in Fraser MI. I graduate Cum Lauda and with many honor cords. At Fraser, I was involved with NHS, NTHS, Student Council, and HOSA. While in high school I took many AP Classes and enjoyed learning. I was very lucky to have attended an amazing high school that really set me up for success.

HOSA and being a Student Athletic Trainer was a huge part of my high school experience. I was blessed to have great, intelligent mentors that helped me discover medicine is the career path for me. Once I discovered I loved Sports Medicine, I ran with it. My junior year I decided to compete at my regional competition. I practiced and studied a lot and ended up winning the gold medal. Now it got hard because I was heading to the state competition. I had two months to learn everything I could. I was pretty nervous when I got to the competition and I tried my hardest. I was completely shocked when they called my name for the gold medalist. I was a State Gold Medalist, this is something I had only dreamed of. I then got the opportunity to go to Orlando, Florida to compete nationally. Unfortunately, I didn’t place but it was a life-changing experience. My senior year I was the regional gold medalist again and I was a state finalist.  I also got to travel to Anaheim, California to attend the national competition to represent my HOSA chapter.

I now attend Wayne State University studying Kinesiology with a concentration in Exercise Science. I chose this pathway because it combines two of my favorite things: medicine and sports.
