master's student in the Faculty of Health Sciences

Before coming to SFU, I worked as a nurse practitioner in a hematology/oncology clinic. Prior to nursing, I was a middle and high school Spanish teacher as well as a massage therapist.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?

I chose to come to SFU because of the MPH program's focus on social justice. Additionally, it offers the opportunity to attain professional experience in public health by completing a practicum.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR RESEARCH OR YOUR PROGRAM TO A FAMILY MEMBER?

The MPH program is a generalist program offering a broad interdisciplinary education that covers multiple areas of public health knowledge and practice, which provides students with options to work in a variety of public health fields after graduation.

WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR STUDIES/RESEARCH AT SFU?

I enjoy learning about a wide range of public health topics and expanding my ability to evaluate public health issues using a social justice lens.
