Why did you choose to come to UMR? I chose UMR because I knew I wanted to prioritize my education during my college experience. UMR has brand new facilities, works with Mayo Clinic and integrates students into the surrounding community. I love that they focus solely on health care and look for new ways to make it better, as well as prepare students for the challenging road ahead in an ever changing environment.

What did your Capstone Experience at UMR involve? My Capstone focused on biomechanics of musculoskeletal injuries. I did a semester away in Colorado to work near the Olympic Training Center and was taught by some of the professors that worked with Olympic athletes. Studying away taught me more about life than what I would typically learn in a classroom setting.
