Why did you choose to attend Tulane SPHTM?

Tulane offers a ton of flexibility and at the same time is incredibly respectable and also quite diverse.

What's your dream job?

I hope to become a neurologist but participate in community health initiatives!

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

I would encourage them to look beyond the CDC. A lot of people going into public health think they will work at CDC--some will, and that's awesome! But the world of public health is so vast and the opportunities are endless!

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

I love tennis and yoga and creating/consuming desserts!

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

I love working online but still having as much communication with professors as I need!
