One of my most memorable academic experiences in college was when I was able to work with one of my
professors one-on-one and assist with research. I ended up completing some of my own research in the process
and got to present it at an International Conference in Illinois in May 2012.

In addition to all of this, I am also an Intern at Rockingham Memorial Hospital in the
Risk Management and Compliance Department
