It was an honor to have been selected to shadow six doctors, all with different specializations, during the Marian Medical Center Physician's Mentoring Program. This opportunity made me realize my passion to become a Nurse Practitioner.

I help students develop the capacity to critically examine global social issues and explore how they can personally contribute to a more just, beautiful, and sustainable world.

I took two full semesters before declaring, and I am still on track to graduate in four years with a double major. It is totally manageable and possible! It helps that Cal Lutheran has so many class options and is not overly impacted like some programs at other schools.
