Right away Des Moines University felt like home away from home, which was exactly what I was looking for.Any advice for prospective studentsSometimes you’ll work so hard that you can forget what you are working for. Don’t be afraid to take a step back, take a breath, and realize how awesome the journey is. School will be demanding, but you have to know when to set aside time for friends, family, and yourself.Extracurricular activities outside the classroomI am a liaison for the Sports Medicine Podiatry Club and Geriatrics Club. I like to play basketball, golf, and just started to practice yoga.In 10 years I see myself…continuously trying to better myself, trying new things, exploring the world, taking risks, spending time with loved ones, and expanding my knowledge of Podiatry.
