Describe your final year of PA school in 3 words.

Demanding, Rewarding, Fulfilling

What advice would you give to next year's first year class?

Take every chance to learn and grow while on rotations. This time flies by much quicker than you think, soak up all of the information and knowledge you can. Take advantage of every opportunity, whether good or bad, because there will always be something to learn or gain from even the worst situation while on rotations.

For students who are new to the OKC area, what is one place they should visit or restaurant they should try?

Pie Junkie! These pies were our rewards after exams and always gave me something to look forward too.

What will you miss most about OCU?

The connections I have made with my classmates and the opportunities we have had to grow together and challenge each other.

What professor or staff member stands out from your time here, and why?

Dr. Britton. He has served as a few different positions during my time in the PA program, but he always made sure everything that happened in the program was for the students' best interest. He was encouraging every step of the way and made sure each of us had everything we needed to succeed.

What is one thing you'd like to say to your family and/or friends on your graduation day?

I just want to say thank you for supporting me every step of the way. Thank you to the many people who opened their homes to me while on rotations all over the state. Thank you to my family for encouraging me every time I felt ready to quit. And most importantly, thank you to my husband for being my constant rock even though we lived apart for most of the last 2 years.

What are your plans after graduation?

I plan to pursue a career as a Physician Assistant in Primary Care.
