If someone was interested in a public health career, what advice or encouragement would you give them?
Do your research on public health. Make sure you are passionate about working in public health, because it is not for everyone. Be honest in the work that you do, be committed, take breaks, be respectful and do not take the work home with you.
What is the most rewarding experience you have had in public health?
The most rewarding experience I have had in public health is knowing I have made a difference in the way access to care is being delivered throughout the communities in the state of Oklahoma.
