Tell us about yourself:

When I am not in school, I am either working at the Benton County Health Department or at Franciscan St. Elizabeth Hospital as a medical scribe. During my undergraduate career, I served as a volunteer for Banner-UMC in both pediatric and bone marrow transplant departments. I am currently a member of the Public Health Student Association, which provides an even larger amount of public health discussions. In my spare time, I love to read. One of my favorite books is “The Panic Virus: A True Story of Medicine, Science, and Fear” by Seth Mnookin.

Your vision:

After graduation, I hope to enroll in an accelerated nursing program. In nursing school, I will only be required to take one public health course which, in my opinion, is not enough to appropriately educate me on the subject. I feel that my knowledge of and experience with public health will make me a better nurse for individual patients and my community.

Why the accelerated MPH option:

I love that the class sizes are small (15-28 students), especially since my smallest undergraduate class was 150. I also appreciate that my professors are often available outside of class, allowing for better clarification about projects I may be struggling with.

Your education:

BS in nutritional sciences from the University of Arizona.
