Tell us about yourself:

I have done a lot of volunteer work in psychiatric and mental health settings, but I have not done much relating to public health. I am currently involved in the PHSA (Public Health Student Association) though. If I am not in class, sleeping or at a PHSA meeting, you can probably find me working out or eating! I have been fortunate enough to travel abroad leisurely and I can’t stress enough how incredible the NON-Americas are — GO TRAVEL!

Your vision:

I hope to achieve an administration position in a hospital setting. I am aware that majority of the individuals who reach this goal have gone through years and years of schooling, working on their medical degree, but I am confident that my master’s in public health will allow me to land a position in the realm of administration and then will work my way up. Though administrative positions also look at MHA (master’s in health administration), I think that my MPH will allow me to work on preventive strategies and present a different perspective for the position.

Why Purdue:

My favorite thing about the public health graduate program at Purdue University is the availability of resources, along with the faculty and staff. I am confident that whenever I need to discuss something with my professor, they will be readily available. Another thing that I genuinely enjoy about the program (also regarding the professors) is their enthusiasm on the topics they are teaching. Sitting in three-hour lectures is never easy, but when you have a professor that is so passionate about the topic, it allows the three-hour lecture to fly by. I am also very thankful to be a part of this program solely for the opportunities that it will open up to me, and the faculty and staff that are a part of this program will constantly support you and remind you that they are there to help you now and after you graduate!

Your education:

My undergraduate major was psychology, with a focus in biological sciences. I received this degree from St. John Fisher College, a small, private Catholic college in upstate New York.
