Dana Klobucar

Hi! My name is Dana. I’m an SI leader for BIOL 1500 and a senior biology major looking to become a genetic counselor. Coming to NSU, SI sessions were something that helped me gain confidence in the classroom and strengthen my understanding of complicated course material. As an SI leader, I’ve loved being able to build relationships with students and seeing them succeed, helping them to overcome any challenges they may face along the way. Outside of the classroom, I serve as the Vice President for Junior Pediatrics and a volunteer with Crisis Text Line. Some fun facts about me are that I have a dog named Nova (unrelated to NSU) and love being outdoors, but especially kayaking and hiking.
