Major: Health Administration

Minors: American Sign Language and Leadership

I currently attend a Central Michigan University in the small town of Mount Pleasant, MI. Mount Pleasant is a small farming town with a casino, water park and busy campus of around 20,000 students. Central was my top choice of school. I knew that if I were going to stay in my home state I needed to find an university that would challenge me but also treat me as an individual. I picked CMU for its small campus feel. Students on my campus are friendly, passionate, outgoing and always hold the door open for the individual behind them. I’m beyond happy with my university choice.

Why Health Administration?

Health Administration gives me the opportunity to serve my community in the health care field. Ever since I was a child, I have been very passionate about making people happy. I chose health administration because it will grant me the opportunity to work with a staff that is dedicated to making a patient’s experience the best that it can be. The positions I will obtain during my career as a health administrator will give me the opportunity to be innovative and a leader.

Why ASL?

Something you’ll never get from this blog is my inability to keep my hands still. They’re always moving; when I walk, when I talk, when I’m just sitting down. I talk with my hands sometimes more than with my mouth. I’m more comfortable in my ability to portray an emotion over my face an with my hands than verbally. I like the voice my hands have over my own. I’ve picked up a lot of it when I was around my mom because she worked with severely emotionally impaired children. I’m by no means fluent, yet, but it’s a place I’ve grown to be comfortable.
