“I’ve always been active inside and outside the classroom. At Salem students are really encouraged to get involved on campus so I knew I’d have a chance to stand out. In addition to being class president and Fall Fest chair and taking a full course load, I pursued a nursing assistant certification off campus.

 Through my clinical experiences I decided the medical career I had planned for so long was not really how I wanted to spend my life. For january term, during my senior year, I became intrigued by a marine biology program Salem was offering in Barbados…That January Term ignited my passion for marine biology. The opportunity propelled me to grad school and my career in environmental science.”
