Why I Chose Guelph… 

I chose to complete graduate studies at the University of Guelph because I had such a positive undergraduate experience studying human anatomy in my third and fourth years. Our laboratory here provides a very unique opportunity where students engage in a year long intensive cadaveric experience.

Advice For Perspective Grad Students… 

The University of Guelph is a professional, fun, and integrated school to complete your graduate studies. The professors are experts in their respective fields and the graduate students are working on leading edge research. Although Guelph does not have the high profile of other Ontario universities, the education you will receive and the work you will do is exciting as you will stand out against competitors.

About My Advisor… 

My advisor, Dr. Lorraine Jadeski, is a dedicated educator and human anatomy expert. As an advisor, she has taught me to expand my research perspective so that I can answer the hard questions regarding my projects and fully understand the background information before diving in. Lorraine is also respectful of my ideas, opinions and concerns. This has allowed us to have honest discussions that have lead to positive, constructive outcomes. I thoroughly enjoyed having Dr. Jadeski as my human anatomy professor during my undergraduate degree, and continue to as one of her graduate students.

About Being a Grad Student at U of G… 

I am proud to be a graduate student at Guelph. We strive for excellence and are pushing research frontiers. The graduate student community is also tightly knit which creates a great sense of comradery. Specifically pertaining to my laboratory, we focus on improving the education of undergraduate students, working healthcare professionals, and members of the community. Education has become a true passion of mine and I love to see a progression of my students' learning.

How Will Your Research Improve Life?

My research is working to improve the education of human anatomy to undergraduate, healthcare professionals, and members of the community. I have had the opportunity to teach human anatomy using the cadaveric resources I have created to enhance the educational experience of students where I aim to teach them other skills more than just anatomy.
