Rachael Simons

Rachael is one of our Sheridan College Foundation Student Partners.  She joined the Student Partners program in the spring of 2020.

Where are you from? Roy, MT

Projected graduation date: 2023

What is your current major? Health Science

What is your job title and where do you work? I work in the library as a Writing consultant and Biology Tutor for part of the time. I also work in Admissions as a Student Ambassador.

What are your goals?  Where do you see yourself in 5 years? A big goal is to be accepted into the Dental Hygiene program here at Sheridan. Once I graduate from the program, I want to be a pediatric hygienist because I think kids are awesome and I want to help improve their future health. Alongside of my Bachelor’s in Dental Hygiene, I want to earn a coaching certificate so I can coach track or volleyball. The five-year goal is to be working with the Global Dental Relief program in India to clean teeth for those who don’t have access to oral care.

When you need a break from academics…. I enjoy taking hikes or playing volleyball with my friends if the weather is nice. If the weather is terrible, you will most likely find me reading a book and cuddling my dog while jamming out to Green Day or Eagles.

My scholarships are important to me because…. they are helping me go to school. Without them, I would be in debt and stressed. I get to focus on my education and not be working a full-time job.

What do you love most about Sheridan College? Is “everything” an answer? I suppose what I love most is the positive atmosphere and how the people here are wanting to help you succeed and achieve your goals.

How has being a Student Partner for the Sheridan College Foundation benefited you? Being a Student Partner has given me a chance to meet leaders of the community and learn how I can become a better leader for my community.
