What is your title and role at your host site?

Health Educator, South Hills Interfaith Movement

Why did you join AmeriCorps/National Health Corps?

This past year, I served as an AmeriCorps VISTA and have grown immensely. I was eager to find a similar experience with a stronger public health emphasis and a cohort of peers with similar goals and values.

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

A better foundation and understanding of public health in general, confidence in my pursuit of a public health career and lasting relationships with peers, experts and leaders in the health equity movement!

What are your plans after AmeriCorps service?

No idea! Possibly another year long program, grad school or an international experience.

Where do you envision yourself in 5 years?

Working to ensure all people have access to quality healthcare and comprehensive health education, in whatever capacity that may be!
