Favorite Class at Union: So many; British Literature, Organic & Biochemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Psychology, and all of the Nursing Classes.

What is your fondest memory so far at Union?: The first time a Doctor acted on my clinical assessment, and all of the wonderful, like-minded people I have met.

Interesting fact about yourself: I hate "British" Football (Soccer) but I am an avid Rugby fan. Studied Tae Kwon Do for 20 years, I have One Gold, and Two Bronze medals from the southern open championships in the UK. I have an Associates Degree in Hospitality and Management Food Preparation and cooking from the UK, in other words I am a fully qualified chef. I am not English, I am Welsh/British (take your pick as to which is more interesting).

What is the biggest adjustment you had to make coming to college?: Going to a different education system after so many years out of college, I am still not used to taking exams that are fully multiple choice.

Career or further education Goals: I am currently aiming for my Bachelors, whilst thinking about the Masters to follow.

Is there anything else we ought to know about you?: If one more person asks me if I am Australian, I might just scream. And the Union Jack is NOT the flag of England, it is the flag of the United Kingdom, and yes, there is a difference.
