Current CSM Student, Nursing
La Plata Student Association Treasurer 2021-2022

Although my path here has differed from others, I truly feel that I am where I am supposed to be and that my life experiences have helped to keep me grounded and focused. I can say confidently that I am a compassionate, determined, and resilient student that is committed to ensuring that communities like mine have access to quality healthcare. 

My experience with CSM has been a phenomenal one. I truly appreciate the community at CSM. From the staff to the professors, whenever I have needed assistance there was always at least one person willing to lend a helping hand. 

CSM has afforded me the opportunity to become a more focused student while managing my other responsibilities outside of education. The last several semesters I have been able to take courses completely online, which makes managing a full-time job and parenting a toddler much more manageable. 

I plan to graduate with honors and finish my BSN at the University of Maryland College Park. From there I look forward to working in my community as an ER Nurse and ultimately a flight nurse.  

My main focus in life is to continue making my education a priority to serve as a role model for my son so he understands that his dreams and goals are possible.
