I volunteer at the KSGN Christian Radio station. I work in the office and at the KSGN booth during concerts and other events. While in the office or at an event, I have the opportunity to speak with people about Jesus Christ and pray with them. It is very fulfilling because it allows me to grow as a child of God. The music is pretty good, too!

Her favorite student experience so far
I had a clinical at Eisenhower Medical Center. Attending the clinical gave me the opportunity to experience what I had only read about in text books. It brought everything together so that I now have a better understanding of where I want my career choices to lead me.
Her Top 5 favorite places around LLU
1) The Campus Store because I love when there is a clearance sale on campus gear.
2) The Loma Linda Market because it has The Blue Zone smoothie bar...Yum Yum!
3) The Loma Linda Medical Center cafeteria because they make the best french fries and grilled cheese sandwiches.
4) The Del E. Webb Memorial Library because it's a great place to study and just get away from it all!
5) Last, but not least, the Loma Linda University Church. It is always a blessing to hear the word of God. Amen!
What motivates her to continue her educational pursuits?
It's been a long time since I attended college. I decided to make a career change but I wanted the change to enhance my computer science background. I've worked with several different companies, but the one that stands out the most is Group Health Cooperative. I worked at the Operations Help Desk. I learned a lot about the healthcare systems during my employment there. That is why I decided to gain more knowledge by attending Health Information Administration program at Loma Linda University.
