My Wesleyan Way: Elissa Starheim ’17

Biology Major

Internships helped shape her career choice

Elissa transferred after her freshman year of college and never looked back. “Wesleyan is famous for their Wesleyan Way, two parts is that we love each other and support each other, and you will definitely feel that on campus.”  Elissa was able to find what she was looking for with Wesleyan and thrived with our small class sizes.  She was able to intern at Owensboro Public Health which helped her select her career path.  She will be using her Biology degree to continue her education in an accelerated nursing program.
