About me: I swapped my wildlife biologist chest waders for a white coat following several years of international travel and work as a park ranger in New Zealand, teacher in Kathmandu, and medical assistant in India. Inspired by my master’s research on developmental abnormalities in the offspring of pesticide exposed frog mothers, I hope to build a career in women’s health that bridges conservation and medicine to address social and environmental injustices in low-resource communities. My favorite parts of the pathway have been the opportunity to connect with like-minded peers and network with local and international global health professionals.
