“I always thought to help people you might need to have a medical degree or, be a nurse or doctor. The ability to work with a company that still helps everyone in that same way is really rewarding for me. The graduate program has been more than what I ever thought it could be. You can get whatever you want out of it, you just have to be willing to take that first step."
