I am a volunteer for Make-A-Wish! I love visiting with kids and their families to uncover their true wishes.
- What was your favorite subject in school?
Thinking back to my time as an undergraduate at MSU, my favorite classes were definitely the sciences, especially anatomy. I still find it so interesting! If I didn't follow the path to being a counselor (which I have no regrets about!), I think I would have gone into the medical field.
