How did your Capstone experience prepare you for your future in what you’re currently doing? My Capstone prepared me for the research I am currently doing, giving me the experience in research and the educational foundation to be confident in my knowledge and skills. This has enabled me to make a major impact in my research and be flexible and effective when tackling the many questions and problems research throws at me every day.

Is there a certain instructor that greatly impacted your time at UMR? There were so many amazing instructors that greatly impacted my time at UMR which makes selecting one almost impossible, so I am going to limit myself to three. The three faculty I would say impacted my time at UMR the most would be Dr. Dunbar, Dr. Terrell and Dr. Prat-Resina. While at UMR these instructors helped to shape my career goals, develop my passion for STEM and refine how I communicate both on a personal and professional level, which has played a major role in getting me to where I am today.
