In 2009, with the intent of tackling global health disparities in the 46 lowest developed countries in the world, I became a Licensed Practical Nurse and immediately after began pursuing my Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Texas Christian University, with which I graduated in December 2013. My passion for improving quality of life for vulnerable and marginalized populations, has been perpetuated and fueled by my summer as research intern at the World Health Organization, and international experiences exploring social determinants of health. After practicing in BUMC's Medical ICU, I began my MSN/MPH at Johns Hopkins with the aim of merging the personalized empathy of nursing with the more widely impactful and upstream perspective of population-based health. In addition to my classroom experience, I gained transferrable skills through my practicums and internships in advocacy and coalition building, quality improvement and qualitative research,and program planning and implementation.
