“I became part of the MEZCOPH family the moment my supervisors asked me how I was settling into the program and Tucson in general. In addition, fellow students in my cohort and the cohorts before me have been very supportive.”

    Before entering the program:

    Before coming to the U of A, I worked as a Public Health Analyst with the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Kentucky where I got my MPH.

    Why did you choose public health?

    I chose Public Health because it gives me the tools to affect change on a population level using an interdisciplinary approach.

    Why did you choose MEZCOPH?

    I liked that my questions were answered on time. Also, I came here because of the opportunity to work with nationally recognized experts in my field of study.

    Public health interests:

    Global Health, Maternal and Child Health, Epidemiology.

    Interests/hobbies outside of school:

    Reading, food, looking for bargains, and spending time with friends and family.

    Tip for future students:

    Do not be afraid of asking questions. Talking with a current student is an important way to learn more about the Public Health program.
