BSFS in Science, Technology and International Health from Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service
Why did you join NHC?
I wanted to spend a year in service to give back after graduating, and I especially wanted to observe firsthand the many types of healthcare roles and how they fit together to provide care for under-served populations.
What are your plans after NHC?
I hope to attend graduate school.
What sparked your interest in community service?
My parents were both involved in local organizations, so it was always a part of my life. In high school I especially enjoyed working to bring back a local community garden. I continued volunteering in college and managed to merge my interests in music and healthcare together which was great. I look forward to the many wonderful service projects yet to come this year!
What excites you the most about serving in Philadelphia?
I have always loved Philadelphia, but I am so excited to further explore the neighborhoods and learn about their specific characteristics (and food options!)
What is your favorite food?
Pasta, with lots of garlic and Parmesan
