Why did you choose to attend Tulane SPHTM?

I was looking to start my Masters in Public Health and the admissions was so helpful during the application process. They answer questions and even sent me an invite to attend a movie presentation that was related to my interests and for me to the type of events that Tulane SPHTM. And even though this an online program, they offer so much support to their online students.

What's your dream job?

I do not have an exact title for my dream job, but I am interested in Public Health Director, Public Health Advisor for governmental agency (i.e. CDC), Public Health Program Coordinator.

What advice would you give someone thinking about getting a degree in public health?

Do it! You do not need to have a healthcare background in order to pursue a degree in public health, just desire to learn and want to make an impact on people's health

Any hobbies, interests, etc. outside of public health?

I love traveling domestically and internationally, reading books, listening to music, going to concerts (pre-COVID), spending time with family and friends, and bingeing on shows and Disney movies.

What is the best thing about being a student at SPHTM thus far?

I have been enjoying the numerous opportunities to meet Tulane SPHTM alum through event such as On the Front Lines. It is inspiring to see past students in different public health roles that may not have been thought to be an option.
