What inspires you about Forensic Science?
I am inspired by this field because I have always loved science, and I would love to be able to use it in a way to help victims who have been affected by crimes, accidents, etc.

What do you like best about your position in Learning Services?
I love being able to find creative ways to help more people hear about Learning Services. Helping someone get the help they need is very rewarding!

What is one thing you want people to know about Learning Services?
Our peer academic coaches really tailor the help towards the student’s needs; it’s personalized and really valuable!

How would you describe your learning style?
I would say that my learning style is more visual and logical. It really helps me to see what I’m learning and to visualize the ideas or processes mapped out.

What are your academic challenges?
My biggest struggle academically is getting rid of distractions and focusing on the tasks at hand.

How do you overcome those challenges?
I try to overcome this by putting my phone somewhere I can’t reach it and going to a quiet place to do my work. I recommend getting some kind of internet blocker to help eliminate any distractions.

Hobbies & Interests
I enjoy getting food with friends, going to art & science museums in D.C., paining, reading, and watching my favorite shows. My favorite places I’ve traveled to so far are Puerto Rico or New York City. I also enjoy hiking. My favorite place to hike is St. Mary’s in Ralphine, Virginia. 

Future Goals 
In the future, I would love to work on crime scene investigations with a state or federal department and go traveling as much as possible!
