Currently working as a career Health Specialist with the NIH's National Institute on Aging. Looking to move into a job focusing on international public health within the federal government, preferably in HHS, USAID, FDA, or the State Dept.
Earned my MPH from Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health, Heilbrunn Department of Population and Family Health, with a focus on Public Health and Humanitarian Assistance. Graduated Summa Cum Laude from Fordham University where I majored in psychology.
With experience working in Sierra Leone and Uganda, I enjoy traveling and working in low- and middle-income countries. I also have experience developing and managing grants, including grants from UNICEF and USAID.
I am action oriented and make sure that decisions are implemented while also being able to ensure that programs are culturally appropriate and effective. I have considerable experience living and working in a cross-cultural and low-resource environment.
