How has being a Biology graduate from Duke helped shape your professional success?

"It provided me with the strong content background needed to teach High School Science. The experiences  (field and lab) has strongly influenced my curriculum design."

What advice would you give students in Biology?

"Take advantage of travel opportunities to gain field research experience. Take courses that pique your interest, not necessarily only ones that might look best to medical/grad schools."
