“I have a big heart for the unfortunate, the sick, the hurt, and the vulnerable. Science combined with empathy is my natural calling, which led me to nursing. The college's faculty and staff are definitely the best in the state of Utah—as a first generation American and student, guidance and support are crucial for my success.”
