After High School

After high school, I plan to attend Brigham Young University located in Provo, Utah. While I attend here, I will take classes to help me prepare for my career in the future. I would like to receive my Bachelors here at BYU after four years of attending this school. The next thing I would like to do is go to University of Utah and attend a Physical Therapy program for about two or three years to get my degree in PT.
