After graduating from FALA in 2017; Nina Hoover received a full tuition scholarship to Northern Arizona University where she has been pursuing a degree in dental hygiene. Nina will graduate from the NAU Dental Hygiene Program in May of 2022 with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene. Following graduation; Nina plans to work as a dental hygienist while finishing a second degree in microbiology. Nina plans on applying to dental schools throughout the country with intentions of becoming either an orthodontist or periodontist. Her ultimate goal is to provide dental care for underserved populations all over the world. Nina currently spends her free time working at Lowell Observatory as a Public Program Educator; hiking local Flagstaff trails; and volunteering around town. While her focus is now primarily on scientific pursuits; Nina still utilizes the skills she learned at FALA; and participates as an actress in murder mystery dinners offered in Flagstaff; and in local television commercials. She is grateful for the skills she developed and the relationships she made while at FALA.
