I was involved on campus as a student worker in the Office of Admissions, a Presidential Ambassador, a Blue Key Honor Society member and a member of Lander University Student Nurses Association. I also traveled to Honduras with Volunteers in Medical Missions. While working toward my bachelor’s degree in nursing, I was able to keep up my certification as a Nationally Registered EMT-I with Greenwood County EMS.
