Community Programs Coordinator – Health Educator, Municipal Alliance CoordinatorBernards Township Health Department
Health education is about empowerment. When we empower individuals with knowledge and information we can send them back into the community to be champions for public health. Empowered people feel motivated to change their behaviors and surroundings to make the best decisions for themselves and their families.
Three words to describe me:
passionate, resourceful, resilient
The best part of my job:
being able to create and implement meaningful health education for the community
Something that would surprise others about me:
I am the definition of an extroverted introvert. I can be just as happy at a party talking to everyone, laughing, and having a great time as I am laying in a hammock reading a book in the middle of nowhere.
