Professional Bio

I have always wanted to achieve my Bachelors Degree and soon that will finally be a reality.  When I graduated from high school, I started attending college at Oakland Community College and then transferred to Oakland University after 2 semesters of courses.  While at Oakland University, I realized my many different interests such as Exercise Science, Nutrition, Health Sciences and Music.  After a while at Oakland University, I decided that I wanted to pursue my passion for music and become an educated musician through Wayne State's reputable music program.  After studying music for 3 years, I then realized that I wanted to pursue music mainly as a hobby and decided to go back to Oakland University.  Shortly after I arrived to Oakland University, I found the major of Integrative Studies.  This degree is perfect for me because of my wide areas of interest and it allows me to incorporate my studies together.
