Why did you choose to come to UMR? I chose to attend UMR for the small faculty to student ratio and the opportunity to be immersed in the medical community in new ways. I loved that each course whether it was statistics or chemistry was presented in a health context to best prepare us for our future careers.

What did your Capstone experience at UMR involve? My capstone focused on the patient experience. Utilizing my own experience as a patient, I shifted my focus to hospice care and graduate coursework through the Center for Healing and Spirituality online through the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. I was interested in learning about how integrative healing methods can be used cohesively with western medicine to create optimum patient care.
