Where are you from?

Boca Raton, FL

Why did you decide to join NHC?

I decided to join NHC because the program provides the perfect t opportunity to combine my interests in public health and clinical medicine. I am excited to get hands-on experience in the two areas and play a direct role in promoting health equity in the local community. 


What are you hoping to gain or learn during your service term?

During my service term, I hope to gain a better understanding of local health disparities and social determinants of health. I also want to learn from the diverse backgrounds of the patients I will be serving, which will broaden my perspective on the experience of others. 


What are you most looking forward to during your service term? 

I am most looking forward to engaging with other NHC members and learning from everyone's different host site experiences. I am also looking forward to exploring Jacksonville and the surrounding area.
