Hi everyone! My name is Thanya Gutierrez I am a junior majoring in Human Health Science on the Pre- PA track, and I am also minoring in Spanish. I’m from Vail, Colorado but I was drawn to the University of Kentucky because of all the amazing things the College of Health Science has to offer. The College of Health Sciences has allowed me to meet great people, has opened doors for me, and it has educated me on very important topics relevant to my area of study that will be very helpful and beneficial to me in the future. I am very grateful to be a part of the College of Health Science because it has been my home away from home. Currently, I am a member of the Pre-PA club, the Human Health Science Student Organization, and a lead mentor for Leading Latinas. In the past, I was a part of the Interprofessional Healthcare Residential College. In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my friends, hiking and being outdoors, exploring all the great things Lexington has to offer, and watching basketball games! I am glad that I decided to come to UK and be a part of the College of Health Science. I look forward to meeting prospective students. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions!
