I graduated with my B.S. in Biology with minors in Criminal Justice and Chemistry at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. I knew I wanted to go into higher education and with my love of science; forensic science just fit those wishes. I chose Penn State because of its hands-on program and its flexibility between the two tracks. I came in for the Biology track, but the program is so well-rounded that I can still learn and improve my skills in other specialties in forensics. The staff and my fellow graduate students are also so welcoming during the interview weekend! In my free time, I enjoy a mismatched of activities. I love reading, cooking, and watching movies, but let me know if you want to go hiking and go see concerts too.
