What are some key moments that affected your journey?
My experience as a foreign exchange student in Belgium living with a family who spoke only French was one of the defining moments of my life. Early in my career, I observed that my belief in a student’s capabilities made a tangible difference in his life and due to his diligent work, his grades went from Fs and D-minuses to Bs and A-minuses. This realization moved me and I still seek opportunities to help people embrace their value and light. Working in other countries, such as Haiti, to help strengthen the public health system and improve lives crystallized my professional journey.
