What brought you to VCU and/or Public Health:

I completed my undergraduate degree at Virginia Commonwealth University in Psychology in May 2013. I loved Richmond so much after undergrad that I wanted to stayed for another 2 years! More importantly, after being a peer health educator at The Wellness Center, it sparked an interest to pursue public health. VCU public health seemed to be the perfect match in terms of faculty and research opportunities. In the future, I hope to work with program planning or evaluation with a focus on health promotion.
