Career Goal: Open up a Wellness center in Salt Lake City, Utah or somewhere else out west

Apart from writing for the SPH Career Services Blog, I am the event and social media correspondent for IU Kinesiology Club, a UTA for the P215 physiology labs and a monitor at the Briscoe Fitness and Wellness Center. In my spare time, I love adventure and new experiences. This past summer was no different; here are a few interesting things I did over break:

 Hung out with my cat, Bailey.


Here we are driving home from Bloomington to Chicago. Apparently she likes to be in control of the vehicle. Admittedly, I am a bit of a crazy cat lady. Bailey comes back and forth from school with me; two other cats live with my roommate and I… but I’m just holding them for a friend, I swear.

 Went to a Passion Pit concert.

They are one of my favorite bands. Other favorites are Vampire Weekend, Iron & Wine, and concertMumford and Sons. I also get a lot of my music from movie soundtracks so my tastes tend to be very widespread and a bit obscure. My favorite song right now is “Dirty Paws” by Of Monsters and Men, but it changes often.

 Cheered on the Blackhawks.

I got box seats to game seven against the LA Kings. blackhawksThe energy at the United Center was unbelievable – watching games on TV will never do it justice. Being a part of the crowd and cheering on the Hawks to a victory was amazing.

Milked a Cow!sean cow

I was surprisingly nervous. I had no clue cows were so big until I was right next to one, but I can now proudly check it off of my bucket list. Things I still have yet to do: go camping in the wilderness, travel to Germany, and run a half marathon.

 Test-drove a Ford Mustang.

All it took was a little white lie, something about my parents buying me a car for my twenty-first birthday, and I got to get behind the wheel. And when asked whether I wanted the top up or down, I went with the obvious choice!  

 Traveled to Costa Rica.

This was easily the highlight of my summer. I learned to surf, went zip lining through the rainforest, swam in a waterfall inside of a volcano, volunteered at a monkey sanctuary, planted trees to help sean costa ricathe country’s reforestation efforts, and saw tons of crazy wildlife. I can’t wait to go back!

I look forward to sharing my thoughts and advice! I aim to provide insight on frequent questions students have as well as putting my own spin on topics we’ve read about a thousand times.

Here’s to a great year for both Indiana University and the School of Public Health!
