Major: Biology
Minors: Chemistry and Mathematics
Year: Senior
Campus Activities: Pre-Medicine Association, Newman Association, Claude J. Clark Learning Center Tutor.

Most influential person you have met at SUNY Plattsburgh so far and why? I have met many individuals who have positively influenced my life here at SUNY Plattsburgh. Choosing one is very hard. I have learned so many things from professors and Resident Assistants. I learned that whatever I studied as a undergraduate student does not indicate what I will do after college or in your career. One of my professors - Dr. Anthony Noce - was a Biochemistry major as an undergrad but decided to go a different route after that, and now he is a professor in the Economics and Finance department. I have met a few professors that have had experienced this heart of change in their career. So you never know when things may change!

Favorite experience at SUNY Plattsburgh and why? This would be when I went to Ausable Chasm. It was my first time going and I am afraid of heights so looking down while walking on small bridges that have holes on the bottom was scary, but overall it was a fun experience with friends. You also got to enjoy the day and nature while also taking pictures.

Favorite spot on campus and why? The Saranac River Trail because you get to appreciate nature on campus.
