About me

Introduction I am an exercise science major at Brigham Young University. I love to study the human body and the human mind (I am also minoring in psychology). I am going to Ghana to conduct a field study on core stability and physical activity. I love and miss my family whenever I am not around them, which is often. I also miss my best friends a whole bunch. I cannot wait to experience new opportunities and to meet new people who will change my life in Ghana. Feel free to leave comments and let me know what you think, questions you have, or personal insights.

You've successfully slain the dragon! How will you toast your marshmallows?

On a skewer, just as I always have, and probably over a stove-top.
