Student Spotlight

Stephanie Breitenbach '14

Stephanie Breitenbach, Class of 2014
Chemistry/Forensic Science

I found out about Methodist through their reputable Criminal Justice program. As a student, I was a member of the women’s soccer team, the Gamma Sigma Epsilon (Chemistry Honor Society), Beta Beta Beta (Biology Honor Society), the Methodist University Work Team, Alpha Lambda Delta, and Omicron Delta Kappa. I was a Methodist University Ambassador and a resident assistant,  and I completed an internship with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency in Springfield, Va.

Methodist University really embraces undergraduate research opportunities. I participated in numerous community service projects and completed undergraduate research projects on the    “Quantification of Tetrahydrozoline (THZ) in Eye Drop Samples.”  My faculty advisor, Dr. Stephanie Hooper Marosek, helped me a great deal with my undergraduate research. I spent time analyzing levels of THZ in different brands of eye drops, and ultimately, my results were helpful in determining the amount of eye drops that need to be ingested to achieve the desired effects. It was an awesome experience and one that I consider to be a key factor in what has allowed me to further my education and go on to graduate school at George Washington University.

During my time at MU, I was surrounded by encouraging people who made my career at Methodist even better. If I had to summarize my journey in one word, it would be, “rewarding.”
