Rebecca W.

United States


I have a passion for the public health of communities in unstable and resource-poor settings. Having recently completed my MPH, I am now pursuing full-time work in public health. I am excited to leverage my programmatic public health and IT experience as well as my professional and clinical experience with the goal of strengthening health systems. I was inspired to pursue this career path after adopting my two children from Ethiopia where I participate in medical missions. As a result of this work, I have developed a first-hand understanding of the unique programmatic and political challenges facing communities in fragile and unstable settings, including resource-poor, crisis, and politically unstable settings. Through my work experience and personal connection, I have developed a deep understanding of the critical role of an empowered engaged community. My professional experience in public health and my deeply personal connection and passion drive my commitment to this work.
