Name: Samantha Meraz
Quarter/Year: Q10, third year
Hometown: Indio, California
Favorite thing about SCNM: I love that there is a gym on campus for me to break a sweat in between classes.
Favorite restaurant or hangout near campus: Thrive Acai Bowl
Campus involvement: I am the current Student Government Association president. I’m involved highly in the business and public speaking club. I am also a student ambassador.
Something unique about you: I can be found more often at Home Depot than at the mall or grocery store.
Why you love naturopathic medicine: I love that naturopathic medicine goes deeper into a patient’s history than any other profession. I love how naturopathic medicine supports the body’s processes instead of blocking them, and most importantly, I love how naturopathic medicine actually heals people.
What you love about Arizona: I love the heat and the welcoming community here at SCNM!
