I am currently pursuing an MPH degree with a concentration in Community Health and Health Behavior. Prior to attending the UB School of Public Health and Health Professions, I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Sciences from the UB College of Arts and Sciences. I became interested in the field of public health after conducting an independent research study at the Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center regarding cancer health disparities, prevention and control. After completing the MPH program, I plan to continue work in my hometown of Buffalo, NY to address the ongoing issue of racial health disparities through administration and community outreach.
I am a Master’s of Public Health student, concentration in Environmental Health. My field experience in Latin America and the Caribbean motivates my interests in vector-borne disease and pest management, and sanitation improvement interventions. Before coming to UB, I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology from the State University of New York (SUNY) college at Geneseo. My current research involvement is with Dr. Pavani Ram, and her team, who facilitates the evaluation of the outcomes of sanitation programs in Malawi and Tanzania. This summer, 2018, I am interning with the Environmental Health division of the Genesee/Orleans County Health Department in Batavia, NY.
I am currently enrolled in the MPH / MSW dual degree program with an MPH concentration in community health and health behavior. Prior to my enrollment in this program, I completed a BS in brain and cognitive sciences and a BA in vocal performance at the University of Rochester. Following undergrad, I took three years off to gain experience in the workforce and decide on my career goals, culminating in my coming to UB. My primary interest is in work with the Veteran population, and I will be completing a field training at the Buffalo VA Medical Center this summer. My ultimate goal is work in clinical mental health care, as well as translational research and/or program development, for the Veteran population.
I am currently pursuing an MPH degree with a concentration in epidemiology. Prior to attending UB, I received my Bachelor of Science in Behavioral Neuroscience at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts.

Additionally, I work as a treatment assistant at Horizon Health Services helping patients in recovery from substance use. For my field training, I am interning at the Genesee and Orleans County Health Department.
