What’s your major? Dental hygienist

Why? “I have always thought it was interesting when I go into the dentist. They show you X-rays and work on your teeth and I saw that as something I could do when I’m older.”

What about all the people who don’t like to go to the dentist? “I have thought about that, but if it means having their teeth pretty, they’ll have to come to me.”

Favorite subject: Anatomy with boys basketball coach Dave Fox.

Smart-Jockspeak: “School has always been important for my family. Take care of schoolwork first and sports come second.”
