Hannah Lee

, University of Missouri School of Health Professions Student Ambassador

Hannah Lee is from Eau Claire, Wisconsin. She is a health science major with a pre-professional emphasis and minor in Spanish. Hannah hopes to attend dental school and become an orthodontist. 

“There are so many opportunities in the medical field and a health science degree helps you explore all of the options,” Hannah says. “One of my favorite classes was Health Science 1000 because the class had dozens of speakers from the health care field come in and discuss what their specific job entails, which allowed us all to learn about the many different professions that one can go into with a health science degree.”

In addition to being a student ambassador, Hannah has been involved in campus organizations such as Hall Government. She is president of her dorm and organizes events for the residents. In her free time, Hannah enjoys spending time with her friends on campus and exploring the different restaurants and shops in downtown Columbia.
