Since graduating from Alma

Since graduating from Alma, I spent some time traveling and learning about how I want to commit myself in my career. I’ve since had a position at Mount Sinai Hospital in the Neurosurgery Department as a Program Manager - leading our efforts in using advanced digital technologies (VR,AR and Navigation) in the operating room. With this healthcare experience I’ve been inspired to go back to school to get a Master’s degree as a Physician Assistant. 

My Alma education

The very personal experience that Alma provides along with opportunities (research, spring term, study abroad) you may not otherwise get at larger institutions I feel put me a step ahead of others. 

My most vivid/best memory of my time at Alma is

There are many - Academically, getting to present my work with Dr.Dopke at the American Chemical Society as an undergrad was a eye-opening and confidence-building experience.  I participated in both swimming and lacrosse during my time at Alma and I have many fond memories with my teammates and supporting others.

My off-campus study experience(s) included

I participated in travel base Spring Term and study broad in New Zealand where I studied at Otago University.
