What is your title and role at your host site?

Lead Family Health Educator at the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank

Why did you join AmeriCorps/National Health Corps?

I wanted to become involved in something bigger then myself in which I could positively affect my community and help to make a genuine impact with those within the community.

What are you hoping to gain from your year of service?

I’m really hoping to grow personally and expand my comfort zones. I’m hoping to gain more focus on where I would like to go with my education in the future.

What are your plans after AmeriCorps service?

I’m planning to enroll back in school to pursue either my Master in Public Health or a degree in nursing. I plan on traveling a bit in the time before enrolling and want to go to places like Thailand, Croatia, and The Netherlands.

Where do you envision yourself in 5 years?

In 5 years, I would love to be involved in running some type of nonprofit here in the Pittsburgh area and/or working as a nurse practitioner focusing in women’s health and wellness.
