Why did you choose Daemen?

Small school, close to home, great medical programs

In what ways are you involved on campus?

I am a Tour Guide and I am also apart of the Daemen Campus Rescue Squad.

What advice would you give to a prospective student?

Don’t be afraid to be yourself. Stand out, join the clubs you want to join, and everything will fall into place. Everything happens for a reason, and you’re you for a reason.

What excites you most about being a tour guide?

Meeting new students and expanding my knowledge about Daemen. 

What is your most memorable moment at Daemen?

All of the different events that Student Activities plan such as their Carnival.

How has Daemen changed or shaped your life?

It has made me more responsible, outgoing, and kind. Being a PA major takes a lot of responsibility, and adapting to such change has made me a better person. Being outgoing has never been something I’ve been good at, but pushing myself to make friends and ask professors for help has also made me a better version of myself. 

Who inspires you the most?

My Uncle Sean. He passed away while serving in the Marine Corps. He always told me to be myself, try my best, and that everything happens for a reason.
