My name is Makenzie Thelen and I am excited to have recently begun the PharmD program. I did my undergraduate coursework in the College of LSA here at Michigan. During my undergraduate coursework I spent my entire time living in the residence halls, first as resident, and then as Peer Academic Success Specialist. It was during this time that I realized I function well as a member of a tight-knit community and that is what drew me to a community such as Telluride.
Outside of Telluride and classes I spend my time in several student organizations. One that I have participated since undergrad is the Student Advisory Board for Counseling and Psychological Services. I am passionate about student mental health issues. I am also interested in learning about geriatric health and hope to pursue such clinical work as I complete my PharmD.
