“It’s better to try something and learn that you don’t like it than to not try all.”

  • Hometown:

    Glendale, AZ

    Prior Degree(s):

    BS Biology, University of Arizona

    Before entering the program:

    I entered the MPH program directly after my undergraduate program at the University of Arizona.

    Why did you choose public health?

    I have always wanted to pursue a career in healthcare but I felt that I needed a better understanding of health before I entered the workforce. I had mentioned this once to a mentor during undergrad and she suggested that I look into public health. After researching the field, I realized that public health is the perfect fit for me. By choosing this degree, I will have a strong background to establish a career in healthcare.

    Why did you choose MEZCOPH?

    We have a fantastic program. I am interested in rural and border health, so staying in Arizona made sense for me.

    Public health interests:

    Infectious disease, rural and border health, community medicine, climate change and vector-borne diseases

    Internship:

    Assessment of Climate and Health Impacts on Vector-Borne Diseases and Valley Fever in Arizona

    Interests/hobbies outside of school:

    Hiking, boxing, watching movies

    Tip for future students:

    Don’t be afraid to pursue higher education. If you think you are interested in a field, explore it to the best of your ability. It might be a different path than what you had anticipated, but at the end of the day, you may just end up exactly where you need to be.
