Why did you choose CEP as your major? I find studying the correlation of the movement of the human body to exercise and physical activity very interesting.


Why MSU-Meridian’s Kinesiology program? The Kinesiology program at MSU-Meridian is an up-and-coming department that is fresh and focused on preparing students for various professional schools.The location of MSU-Meridian is just an added perk. I am able to study an area of science that I love with the convenience of being close to home.


Why did you select CEP as your professional pathway? I look forward to working with individuals in the public or private sectors of Kinesiology.


What are your aspirations following graduation from professional school/CEP? I am interested in working with patients and clients in local hospitals and private programs. I feel such pride in being from Mississippi, and I want to make my community and state a healthier and happier place.
