Why did you choose to come to UMR? The smaller class sizes made me feel more than just a number and the availability of faculty and staff solidified their commitment to student success. The BSHS major allowed me the flexibility to explore different avenues of health care careers without having to change my major throughout my college experiences.
How did your Capstone experience prepare you for your future in what you’re currently doing? It allowed me to build my resume and gain relevant skills directly applicable to the workforce. I started my career in pharmaceutical clinical trials where I remotely monitored data along with safety/quality signals within a variety of therapeutic areas including oncology and pain management. My familiarity with clinical documents and data collection opened the door to the world of medical device.
