Blake Butikofer

My name is Blake Butikofer, and I am from Meridian, Idaho. I enjoy playing sports, especially basketball, tennis, and pickleball. I love being outdoors and spending time with my wife. This is my Junior year at BYU. I chose Exercise Science because the human body and its functions are fascinating to me. I plan to pursue an M.D. after I graduate from BYU.

Lizzy Miles

Hello! I’m Lizzy Miles from Olympia, Washington. I’m in my first year of BYU’s Master of Athletic Training program. I plan on pursuing physical therapy school and becoming a PT. A fun fact about me is that I used to work on a geoduck farm growing up. I chose Exercise Science because I find the human body to be such a fascinating and truly amazing thing.

TJ Stefl

Hey guys! My name is TJ Stefl and I’m from Farmington, UT. This year is my senior year! I love to be active by lifting weights or doing anything outdoors. I’m studying exercise science because I want to help people understand the benefits of regular exercise and taking care of their body and possibly pursue an M.D. or Ph.D.

Suzanne Thompson

Hi everyone! My name is Suzanne Thompson. I’m from Topeka, Kansas. I love to read, bake, and do anything outdoors (especially volleyball)! I chose Exercise Science because it was the perfect combination of science and math for me. After graduation, I plan to become a Physician’s Assistant.
