"I graduated from DHMC in 2009 and went on to Mercy High School, then received my Bachelors in telecommunications and information management from Western Michigan University...I worked in this field for a few years and realized that my heart wasn't into it, so I'm working toward becoming a registered nurse. A friend of mine and I often comment on how much we appreciate our time attending DHMC, and how we truly wouldn't be who we are today without those years. We were lucky enough to grow up in a diverse and respectful environment - something we both agree has helped us grow into well-rounded adults."
