Major/Year: Bachelor of Science: Exercise Science, 2011

What were some things you enjoyed about your major? The professors in the Exercise Science program made our classes exciting and engaging and took a very “hands-on” approach to educating. I enjoyed all of our labs, biomechanics, exercise prescriptions and assessments and my field work at New Hanover Regional Medical Center in the cardiac and pulmonary rehab departments.

What are some of your favorite pastimes/hobbies? Kayaking, attending UNCW basketball games, shooting hoops, playing the drums and spending time with family and friends at the beach and on the water.
