I am a second-year Epidemiology MPH Student here at the University of Michigan’s School of Public Health. When I graduate this April I also hope to have earned certificates in Risk Science and Human Health and Public Health Genetics. If i’m lucky, I will also be moving on to a Ph.D Program. Alternatively, I am also interested in possibly pursuing a career in Science Communications, but I haven’t made any decisions yet! My health interests in are primarily in the areas of Disaster Management and Epidemiology, Maternal and Fetal Medicine, and Genetics. When not studying (in those few rare moments), i spend far too much time reading, playing with my two dogs, reading up on politics, or playing the occasional video game.

I am a second year MPH student studying Health Behavior and Health Education. Although broadly focused in health communication, my specific health interests include obesity, chronic disease, and nutrition. I can’t get enough of any activity that gets my heart pumping and adrenaline rushing. My favorites include soccer, running, hiking, and field hockey. Don’t be fooled though, despite my obsession with anything active, I am just as content in the kitchen baking (and eating) cookies, pies, and sweets.

I am a ‘food connoisseur’, intrigued by all things food from policy to cooking, to consumption. I hope to one day publish a vegan cookbook using all my Frankenstein-like masterpieces; I am an ‘edgy veg’.

I’m an MPH student in epidemiology. My background is in clinical medicine. I did all of my training in New York City and practiced internal medicine at Harlem Hospital before coming to the University of Michigan for additional training in preventive medicine.
