What is your major or degree program?

What do you hope to do after completing your degree?
I’d have to go into a graduate program, and then try to become a behavioral analyst

How is Doane preparing you to reach your goals?
They are providing me with the proper tools and skills to be able to get closer to what I want to be in the future.

Who has been a major influence for you during your education at Doane? How have they helped you?
Because I just transferred from Midland, I’m still new to the campus but I’ve enjoyed taking classes from Dan Clanton, who runs a lot of the religious classes. His LAR classes have been thought provoking and engaging!

What advice would you give to an incoming student?
Doane is a great place to have great experiences, there’s so much that they offer so don’t be worried at all. There’s a place for you anywhere and if you can’t find it, you can definitely make one.

What's something you like about yourself that other people may not know?
I can be honest and straightforward when I need to be and make sure the people in my circle are positive role models

What is something you've really enjoyed about your time at Doane?
I’ve enjoyed all of the activities such as silent disco or glow casino that they’ve put on.
