Catie - Cardiovascular Perfusion Student Ambassador

Hi! My name is Catie and my hometown is Fairhope, Alabama. I attended Auburn University where I majored in Business Administration and Marketing.  I grew up on the waters of the Gulf Coast, and have a deep passion for sailing and all things aquatic. I love being active and typically never turn down an opportunity to try something new or to be outside. Since moving to Charleston three years ago, I have a newfound love of food and cooking. Yoga keeps me grounded, sailing keeps me relaxed, and my three year old lab, Brewin, keeps me on my toes. I love everything about Charleston and am excited to be a part of the MUSC family!

At MUSC you’re not just another number among a sea of students. The professors, faculty, and other classmates take a genuine interest in you and your education. The support that you get on and off campus is unparalleled, and the experience that you gain is irreplaceable. I always wanted to go to school in Charleston, so choosing MUSC was an easy decision. Through the process of taking prerequisites I found that I loved the heart and cardiovascular system, and was amazed at how the body can physiologically maintain itself. I truly fell into the right program and institution at the right time, and have enjoyed every moment of it.

And P.S. Charleston is a very special where you truly have it all. Beaches are 15 minutes from campus, award-winning restaurants are around practically every corner, the history runs deep, the music scene is growing, and the possibilities for fun are endless.
