The past year-and-a-half has been hard for many people in public health. But with the challenges, opportunities have presented themselves. Opportunities to build trust in public health, to create momentum in other areas of community health, and to become a trusted leader in the field of health…these are all opportunities that should be seized.
Three words to describe me:
positive, engaging, reflective
The best part of my job:
fast-paced, always new, community facing, opportunities to learn, progressive!
Something that would surprise others about me:
I'm an extrovert with anxiety, depression, and OCD. The extroverted nature can sometimes hide mental health struggles.
