Future Work: I’d like more hands-on activity with clients and stakeholders in my future public health endeavors. I loved planning the 2010 OPHA annual conference and would like more responsibility to be involved in other public health events of this magnitude. Health policy and working with the legislature is something that I enjoy and would like to learn more about as I move forward with my career.  I value guidance and support from my supervisors, but I also appreciate being able to work autonomously. As for specific subject-matter, I’m very open to all aspects of public health.
