How has being an Evolutionary Anthropology graduate from Duke helped shape you personally and/or professionally?

"My father is a retired orthopedic surgeon who studied anthropology, so when I was a pre-health student at Duke and learned there was a new degree program (BAA) I was naturally interested. The classes I took with Dr. Ken Glander and Dr. Mary Maas in particular left me fascinated and ultimately pushed me in the direction of a dental career."

What advice would you give students in Duke's Evolutionary Anthropology programs? 

"Duke is full of many intelligent and sometimes it can be intimidating, but ultimately you learn about your strengths and weaknesses. Challenge yourself and try something different. It may lead you in a completely different direction than you were originally planning."
