I am currently a third year doctoral student in public health at George Mason University. My research is focused on developing tailored specific interventions both at the individual and community level for cancer prevention and control that will lead to improvement in knowledge and awareness about screening services, reduction in cancer disparities and reducing the burden of cancer altogether.
Before starting my doctoral program, I worked at the Maryland department of health for two years on vaccine preparedness and safety. I applied to be a judge for the women in business and profession worlds awards because I believe I am a strong advocate for women empowerment and recognition. I also strongly believe that I am equipped to judge the work of these phenomenal women.
