  • Samantha Cary

    Hi! My name is Samantha Cary, and I’m a fourth-year student in my last semester at Boise State. I’m originally from San Diego, California, but moved to Boise about four years ago and have really enjoyed my time here. I enjoy psychology, but I’m really passionate about biology. After graduation, I plan on applying to master’s programs for genetic counseling. In my free time, I enjoy roller skating, painting, and spending time with friends. Dogs and Mexican food are two of my other favorite things. I’m looking forward to working with you this semester!
