Why I chose my major

When starting my academic journey at UGA, I knew I wanted to select a major that would give me the best opportunity to serve others and my community. I chose Human Development and Family Science because I knew right away that it would gift me with a wonderful and strong foundation on which to build my desired future career as a nurse. HDFS is extremely applicable to so many facets of life, and I appreciate how well I can apply my knowledge to the real world.

What I like most about FACS

I love how passionate my professors are about their work and the success of their students. I am honored to have been taught by such dedicated, kind, wise, and generous individuals; I have learned so much about myself and my family from their instruction. Looking back at my time at UGA, my professors and the HDFS community truly made my experiences worthwhile.

Post-graduation plan

I will be attending Augusta University’s Masters of Science in Nursing CNL program next fall with the ultimate goal of becoming a pediatric nurse practitioner.
