Position Title:

SOS and Shelter Health Care Coordinator

Where are you from?

I was born and brought up in the Bay Area and went to school in Cleveland, Ohio before moving to San Francisco.

Why did you decide to join NHC?

I decided to join NHC as I wanted to get experience in the field of Public Health and help address healthcare inequities in San Francisco. NHC provided me the perfect opportunity to serve an area that I grew up near while being able to work with like-minded individuals.

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

During my service term, I am hoping to learn more about the local healthcare systems and gain new perspectives from working with a diverse local population. Additionally, I hope to continue developing patient-care skills to adequately help others and challenge myself through the term as an aspiring physician.

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

I am most looking forward to collaborating and learning from the NHC staff, members, and staff at the clinics. I am also excited to explore the city and try new food along the way.
