I earned a degree in Exercise Physiology. What is your favorite thing about UAH? I love that at UAH you get all of the benefits of a big university but the feel of a small university. UAH has some great academic programs and several opportunities to get involved. What do you think is the most important factor for any incoming student? I think having an open mind is so important. College provides you the opportunity to learn in the classroom and about yourself. Take advantage of all of the involvement opportunities UAH has to offer. It’s a great way to try new things and meet new people. What are your hobbies? I love working out, running, and just about any activity outside.
