1. Why did you choose Daemen?
I initially chose Daemen because it's well known for Physical Therapy, and after visiting campus I fell in love with the small class-sizes and overall friendly and helpful atmosphere. I also thought it was a great location, with a lot of things to do in the surrounding area.
2. What activities are you involved in on campus?
On campus, besides doing tours, I am a Telecounselor, who works to call prospective students, an Academic Coach for a research writing class for health professionals, the community chair for the Student Physical Therapy Association (SPTA), and I will be a Teaching Assistant in the Graduate Anatomy Lab this upcoming year. In the past, I have enjoyed working as an Orientation Leader and organizing events with the Health & Wellness Club.
3. What excites you about this Tour Guide position?
I love being a Tour Guide because it allows me to help shape one of the first impressions that someone has about Daemen College. I have a lot of passion for my program and the college itself, and I look forward to helping prospective students feel comfortable about asking questions when it comes to a college decision.
4. Places I want to travel:
I would love to visit Australia and finally meet the pen pal that I have kept in touch with since 4th grade! I also want to travel to Europe, and possibly some Spanish-speaking countries since Spanish is my minor.
