Research Fellow, Office of the Surgeon General, U.S. Army
“I never felt like a number at Marymount. It was such a wonderful experience, and I felt valued as a student, especially by my academic advisor who pushed and encouraged me. She is still mentoring me today, I can’t thank her and Marymount enough for my experience. Now in my fellowship, I am responsible for implementing the Performance Triad, a plan to promote sleep, activity and nutrition among Army family members. I collect data at bases across the country. I love that I have a hand in working at the strategic level to help make a positive difference in the lives and health of soldiers and their families. The team I work with has faith in me and my contributions, and I know Marymount helped prepare me for this role.”
