Host Site: YMCA Clay County

What is your title and role at your host site? YFFL (Youth Fit For Life) Coordinator.  I will be implementing initiatives to students in Clay County to improve their physical fitness and their nutritional education for an improved wellbeing .

Why did you join the National Health Corps Florida AmeriCorps program? I joined the National Health Corps because I wanted to take time after graduation and try something new.  After looking into NHC I felt it was a great opportunity for me to get out of my home state and help make a difference in the community.  Also I thought this would be a good experience and stepping stone for what I do after my service.

What are you hoping to gain from your year of service?   I am hoping to have a positive impact on the community members that I serve as well as learn as much as I possibly can from NHC.

What are your plans after AmeriCorps service?   I plan to find a career in public health or something related.

Where do you envision yourself in 5 years?  In 5 years I see myself with a career in something health related or maybe pursuing a master’s degree in something health related.
