Why did you choose to come to UMR? I had a strong interest in health care, and valued the strong partnership that the University of Minnesota Rochester had with Mayo Clinic. I knew that I would give me quality experiences to determine the health care path that was right for me.

How did your Capstone experience prepare you for your future in what you’re currently doing? My training and experiences as a respiratory therapist working in the ICU prepared me to evaluate and treat a wide-range of pulmonary diseases as well as gave me baseline medical knowledge on how to assess and treat critically ill patients.
