As part of our ongoing series to profile faculty, staff and student representatives, this month we feature A.J. Yost, President of MCCN-FMC’s Student Advisory Council.

Name: Andrew Yost Jr.

Nickname: A.J.

Hometown: Orlando, Florida (born); Lancaster, Ohio (current residence).

Alma Mater: I have a degree in exercise physiology from Miami University.

I can’t live without… coffee. I have it everyday and multiple cups at that.

If I could spend the day with one person it would be… my son. He is the coolest person I know.

If I could travel anywhere, I would go to… Bora Bora. Have you seen that place?

When I have down time, I… usually watch sports, i.e., college football, or I am setting my fantasy lineup.

My favorite movie is… anything with Denzel Washington (American Gangster and Remember the Titans are some top choices).

The quote I tend to live by is… “Never give up.” It is engraved on my stethoscope.

My favorite thing to do in Columbus is… go to Blue Jackets games.

I chose to be a nurse because… when I come home at the end of the day or speak with friends or family, I am proud of what I do. I get to come home and say I made an impact on someone’s life today.

I love Mount Carmel because… they push us to be the best at what we do.

The coolest thing that has ever happened to me was… I spent a month in Africa traveling and teaching English.

The thing I'm looking forward to the most this holiday season is… spending much needed time with family.

One thing you may not know about me is… I listen to 90s rap, hip-hop and R&B while working on clinical paperwork.
