Hi everyone! I am a third-year Psychology major on the pre-med track pursuing a BS degree. After undergrad, I plan on attending either PA school or medical school ultimately specializing in pediatrics. Outside of the psychology ambassador program, I belong to numerous clubs on campus including the OSU pre-med club, campus EMS, and CEO club, and am an active member of a campus sorority! Outside of my academics, I am an avid moviegoer and TV binge watcher, love workout classes at the RPAC (Recreation and Physical Activity Center), going for walks, art, spending time with friends, grabbing coffee or a sweet treat, and exploring new campus study spots and cafes! I love giving advice and if you have any questions about the psychology major or life at Ohio State in general, please feel free to reach out. I would love to help!

Hi everybody! I am a second year from Sunbury, OH and I’m pursuing a Psychology BA degree with a minor in Spanish.
