2015-2016 APNN Fuld Scholars
I grew up in Bound Brook, NJ. I graduated from Kean University with a BA in Biology. My ultimate goal is to become a Pediatric Nursing Practitioner. Outside of school I work as a personal trainer. I love helping people stay active and reaching their fitness goals. I look forward to this new endeavor and to meeting all of you
I grew up in Rochester, NY and completed my undergraduate work here at University of Rochester. During my undergraduate years, I studied abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark and enjoyed the experience of immersing myself into Danish culture. Besides traveling, I enjoy hiking and am starting photography. For nursing, my academic and professional goals are to obtain an advanced degree and to improve the health care quality of people who suffer from neuropsychiatric disorders.

I was born and raised in the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. I obtained my BS in Biology from the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez and a PhD in Microbiology and Immunology from the University of Rochester. I enjoy traveling, learning about different cultures and trying new foods. I see myself becoming a Gerontology or Family Practice Nurse. I look forward to this new adventure with all of you this year.
I grew up in Webster, NY and attended the University of Rochester where I earned a BA in Psychology and a minor in Biology. My ultimate goal is to become a Mental Health Nurse Practitioner here at Strong Memorial Hospital. Outside of school I am very athletic and extremely close with my family. I cannot wait to begin the ABPNN with you all!
I am from Rochester and have a degree in Film Production. I recently decided to change careers and enter the world of nursing where I am looking forward to re-purposing my skills to help others. I am excited about meeting everyone!
