Hi! My name is Blake Harvey and I am from Bloomington, Illinois but I was drawn to the University of Kentucky because of the excellent programs within the College of Health Sciences (CHS). I am a senior student majoring in Human Health Sciences on the Pre-Dental track with hopes to attend dental school after I graduate. This will be my second year as a CHS Ambassador where I have enjoyed reaching out to prospective students, creating events for CHS students, and working to increase the diversity within our college.
In addition to being a CHS ambassador, I am also a volunteer at the UK Hospital and the Mission Lexington Dental Clinic where I am able to help my community by working with dentists to help the underprivileged receive needed oral health procedures. I am a foster and sitter through 4 Paws for Ability where I trained and raised a service dog named Mystical and continue to sit service puppies-in-training (big finals de-stressor). In my free time I enjoy playing with dogs, working on cars, playing guitar, and being active such as hiking at the Red River Gorge. I am glad to be a part of the College of Health Sciences because of the close and supportive community where I get to meet new and interesting people. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions!
