Karina Quinto

Karina Quinto
Hometown: Vista, California
Major: Nursing
Interests: Being Involved

Hard work at Parkland College pays off, according to Vista, California native Karina Quinto. After all, making good grades led to her induction into the Phi Theta Kappa international honor society, which in turn, she says, “assisted me in being selected into Parkland’s nursing program.

“Phi Theta Kappa’s chapter here has had the most impact on my education, because it motivates me to strive to challenge myself,” Karina says. A dean’s list student who serves as the vice president of PTK, she is also a member of Club Latino and the Student Nurses at Parkland (SNAP) organization. Karina plans to put her Parkland training toward a career as a physician’s assistant.

“I appreciate the fact that Parkland offers many student and support organizations. I would advise incoming students to join organizations and never be scared to ask for help
