My interest in public health began as nursing student at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. The relationships I built with patients and the life stories they shared with me motivated my work as a health advocate. My desire shifted to learn more about factors beyond individual-level control. I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Promotion & Wellness at the University of Wisconsin. I then worked in remote locations in Alaska in the area of employee health promotion. I pursued a graduate degree in the field of Public Health through Oregon State University. I taught undergraduate courses that focused on individual and social determinants of health. I worked in outreach and education at the National Pesticide Information Center. I currently work as a Public Health Educator for the Pesticide and Occupational Public Health Surveillance programs within the State Public Health Division.
