Why you got interested in public health: I initially became interested in public health because it focuses on mitigating and reducing the occurrence of disease. Public health’s role as preventative medicine is what captured my attention the most.

Aspirations after graduating with your MPH: I am considering several directions but am looking into applying for an officer commission in the US Navy.

Favorite part of the MPH program or best memory thus far: My favorite memory so far is when I studied previous environmental disasters and how the communities, governments, and world responded to them.

Favorite Hobby: I taught myself how to cook in undergrad and love learning new techniques and practicing recipes. Changing recipes to my own personal taste and sharing with friends and family is one of my favorite things to do.
