Hello, welcome to my e-portfolio! My name is Cori Reichman and I am currently a senior at Ithaca College. I will be graduating in May of 2014 with a degree in Health Science with an emphasis in Pre-Med and receiving a minor in Nutrition. I was born and raised in Rockland County, New York about 30 minutes from New York City.
My interest for health science was always something I loved since I was in middle school and high school. Nutrition and fitness has been a huge part of my life for about 8 years now. Health is something that is very important for someones overall well being. While interning at Hackensack University Medical Center in the Nutrition Department where I shadowed multiple dietitians and a few of the other wings of the hospital with Nurse Practitioners, I learned that helping others is what I loved most. Seeing patients faces light up when coming into the room because they knew people cared about them and their health amazed me. After interning I knew right away what I wanted to do with my life and that was to become a Nurse Practitioner and to get my doctorate so that I could give individuals my health science view point about health and why it is something everyone should be making sure of. I hope to be continuing my career in family care because I want show children how important it is to maintain their health so their future is healthy and bright. I developed an extensive knowledge of skills through out my studies here at Ithaca College. My professionalism and proactive character are described here within the 8 components.
