Health Sciences

During the summer between my sophomore and junior year, I had the incredible opportunity to travel to Spain for two weeks of healthcare immersion. I was able to apply my Health Science knowledge to real healthcare experiences while also shadowing four different specialties within the hospital. My greatest takeaway, though, was the immersion that I had in a Spanish-speaking country. As a Spanish major, I left Spain with a greater appreciation for bilingualism and a greater passion for integrating a second language into my future career as a PA. I have since enrolled in a Health Science course that enabled me to serve as a medical translator at an off-campus clinic. My time abroad was an extension of the classroom that taught me the value of my Health Science degree and the impact my education will have on my career path.

Something I take great pride in is creating the Business in Healthcare Club (BHC) here on campus. As the founder, I saw a need to create a welcoming and educational community at Butler University for students interested in learning about the business of healthcare, including non-clinical healthcare careers, by connecting and providing accessible resources that foster personal and professional development. This student organization has pushed me outside of my comfort zone as a leader, and it has been incredible to see its impact on campus!
