Why did you choose to come to UMR? I chose UMR to focus on my education specializing in health sciences and health care. Every class surrounds health care, and I found learning from professors in smaller class sizes was important to my experience and education
How did your Capstone experience prepare you for your future in what you’re currently doing? I took specialized child psychology and psychology classes at the UMN Twin Cities campus which led classes at the UMN Twin Cities campus which led me to realize I wanted a program where I would be able to do more than just therapy. I loved the sociology and psychology classes I took at both UMR and UMN Twin Cities, and decided social work would be the best route for me.
