Growing up as a child I knew I wanted to go to Auburn for college no matter what it took. I grew up as an Auburn fan so there was no other way to go. My time at Auburn started the summer of 2005 in the COSAM Summer Bridge program. This summer program only solidified my decision to go to Auburn as well as my decision to be a COSAM major. I originally started as a Biomedical Science Major in the fall of 2005 but later switched to Labortory Technology which is what I have my first degree in. I couldn’t get enough of Auburn so I did a year internship and graduated for a second time with a Medical Technology degree.

During my time on the plains, I witnessed some of the best football ever along with making friendships that will last a lifetime. I gained a lifetime of sisterhood through the Kappa Upsilon Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta that I wouldn’t have been able to experience anywhere else.

Thanks to Auburn I have family all over the world. No matter where I go in the world it never fails that I meet a fellow Alumni that I can share my Auburn experience with. And the professional connections are endless.

I’m currently a PA at Duke University and I know my strong science background from Auburn’s COSAM made all of this possible. Thanks Auburn.

I Believe in Auburn and Love It.

War Eagle!
