Educational/Professional Background

I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis in 2016 with a B.A. in Anthropology: Global Health & Environment. I then worked at a management consulting firm supporting a U.S. Department of Defense global health engagement office. In this role I provided education and training, professional development, and community management support to a cadre of global health engagement professionals around the world. At Hopkins, I am pursuing my MPH with a concentration in Humanitarian Health and certificates in Evaluation: International Heath Programs and Epidemiology for Public Health Professionals.

Research Interests or Career Goals

My research interests are in the effect of conflict on healthcare service access as well as health system development for fragile settings as they transition from the humanitarian space to longer-term development assistance.

Why I Chose Hopkins

I chose Hopkins because the MPH curriculum is very flexible and you can truly make it your own. The curriculum has allowed me to take a mix of methods courses such as epidemiology and biostatistics and content-driven courses around topics like humanitarian health and international health. Additionally, the Hopkins network - students, professors, and alumni - is incredibly strong, diverse, and supportive.
