My name is Carly Burrows. I apologize for the late post but I wanted to tell you a little bit about myself.
I grew up in Madison, Connecticut on the shoreline. I was recruited to play women's lacrosse at Plymouth my Junior year of high school. After looking at the whole picture and having the opportunity to visit Plymouth multiple times, I knew Plymouth was right for me.
I started out as an Education major, switched to Exercise and Sport Physiology, and then this past year is when I put together my Interdisciplinary Studies Degree that mirrors an Allied Health Science degree. My disciplines include Biology, Chemistry, and Physical Education. This degree is a building block for graduate school. I would like to go into Nursing, Cardiac Perfusion, or become a Physician Assistant. I am not entirely sure yet which career path I am going to pursue but this degree has certainly opened up many doors for me for the future.
I played lacrosse at Plymouth for 2 and a half years. I served as a team captain for my last semester playing. I absolutely love the sport and had played for a total of 8 and a half years. I ended up quitting the end of my junior year because my course load was extremely demanding and I had an internship that I wanted to devote more of my time to. Additionally, I got married! I got married last January to my husband who is a Navy Corpsman. He works with marines and is stationed at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. I moved to North Carolina this past May. I will not be present in the face-to-face classes for that reason but I am actively participating behind the scenes!
It was a bit of a shock moving down here. I will tell you one thing...we don't have a foot of snow right now. I thought I would like a break from blizzards but I miss snow more than I thought I would! However, I could not be happier to be down here with my husband and our two rescue dogs, Blue and Chubs. He got back from a deployment overseas this past October. Deployment taught me a lot about myself and only made us stronger. While he was deployed my support system at Plymouth and at home was tremendous.

I really look forward to what this course has in store for us! I wish you all a happy semester!
Stay warm! :)
