Kent State University was where I first learned about a career in Public Health; I was in my third year of college enrolled in the radiation therapy program when I had a change of heart. I knew that I wanted to help people, but cancer treatment was just not my fit. Once I learned about what Public Health was and what careers were out there, I knew I had found my niche especially with Environmental Health. In the Spring of 2014, I graduated from KSU with a Bachelor of Science in Public Health with a concentration in Occupational and Environmental Health. I became aware of OEHA when I learned about a scholarship opportunity. In Spring 2014, I was able to attend my first AEC due to receiving the undergraduate George Eagle Scholarship. Since then, I have had the opportunity to work for now three nationally accredited health departments. As a Stark County native, I was excited to start my public health career with Stark County Health Department. There I was mentored and exposed to several Environmental Health programs, and where I obtained my RS. I then spent a few years working at Canton City Public Health in the EPA contracted Air Pollution Control program. In the Fall of 2019, I was offered a position as the Director of Environmental Health at the Carroll County General Health District. This opportunity was a large leap, but I am so grateful I took the jump. Our small but mighty health department has overcome many trials, and I am so proud to see where we are today. I am very eager to be serving as your NE District Director this year. With a strong committee of experienced environmental health professionals, I know we will have another wonderful conference this Fall.
