When did you join MUSC? 11/06/2011

What’s your favorite part about working in global health? Being given the opportunity to intermingle with people from all around the world and to be able to learn about their cultures and ways of life is a gift for me.

What advice would you give to an international student or faculty member coming to MUSC for the first time? Be prepared to feel overwhelmed, nervous, excited, etc. all at once, but over time you will acclimate to your new surroundings. You will meet many fantastic people who will be willing to help and get you settled in a comfortable routine. It won’t happen overnight, but be patient. It’ll happen before you know it.

How do you like to spend your free time? I enjoy spending time with my family and Maggie (my dog), reading, crocheting, going on nature walks, and going to the beach.

What is your favorite place to travel? Spain and/or any beach anywhere
