How did your Regis education prepare you for your current role?
I found it so easy to communicate one-on-one with professors to get extra help or to talk through concepts, as well as take advantage of the tutoring program. The leadership roles I held and the classes I took absolutely prepared me to do what I’m doing now.
What was the most important thing you learned while at Regis?
Hands-on experience is very important. But learning how to practice mindfulness and self-care helps me be truly successful.
Any advice for future Regis B.S. Health Care Administration students?
Get out of your comfort zone and never be afraid to ask questions. Just be yourself and opportunities will open to you.
