Hi everyone! My name is Laura Juszczyk and I am a student right now at the beautiful University of Wisconsin- La Crosse. I am majoring in Biomedical with a minor in Chemistry with the hope of becoming a Physical Therapist. This website was a product  of a project assigned by my Organismal Biology professors Dr. Gregory Sandland and Dr. Thomas Volk. I must say, if they did not assign this project, I still would think plants were boring. The reason I picked this plant was because I recognized this plant as one that my grandmother used in her garden frequently. I remembered that I thought it was a beautiful plant because of the heart-shaped flowers.

From since I was little, I knew that I wanted to become something in the medical field. This made me like biology even more, especially the parts that were about human biology. Even though I started only liking the human part of biology, I became more well-rounded with other organisms and began to appreciate all life.

When I'm not doing biology, I enjoy running, biking, reading, playing music, and watching movies. However, I like to keep myself busy with student leadership and other forms of involvement so I hardly have time to do these activities.
