Alyssa Cynkar

Hello, My name is Alyssa Cynkar and I am a senior here at UW-Whitewater. I come from a small town just north of Madison called De Forest, WI. I am currently working on my degree in biology with a pre-vet emphasis. I hope to someday be a vet technician or veterinarian and work in an animal hospital to help animals of small and large sizes. I just got back from studying abroad in Australia and that has urged me to learn more about other cultures and travel more in the near future. Outside of school, I enjoy being involved in intramurals on campus, hanging with my friends and family, attending sporting events, and enjoying all types of food. I hope to be helpful to you here at the Campus Tutorial Services and will do so with a friendly face.
