PSM Alumni Profile
New Product Transfer Scientist in Vaccine Process Development
What was your undergraduate degree in?
B.S in Biology from Park University
Why did you decide to pursue a Professional Science Master's degree (PSM)?
The program offered a great selection of professional and STEM classes, rather than focusing on just one field. Professional skills such as communication or management are crucial for succeeding in any career, while the STEM classes were directly applicable to vaccine manufacturing.
How has the PSM contributed to your career?
It has broadened my understanding in vaccine manufacturing as well as the animal health industry. I enjoyed in-class discussions for various relevant topics and the seminars offered by K-State. The PSM challenged me to be a problem-solver by applying multidisciplinary approach during the completion of the capstone project. Combination of scientific and communication skills that I developed during the program has helped me gain self-confidence and expertise in veterinary vaccine manufacturing.
