I am looking for like-minded people who personally and professionally seek to better the lives of marginalized populations. I would like to expand my network of contacts beyond the Buffalo, NY region, as well.
My ideal career is with a refugee-serving non-profit organization addressing the health needs of displaced persons.
I am a recent graduate of Buffalo State College with a BA in anthropology. I specialize in cultural anthropology with an interest in medical anthropology. Currently, I am an AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer serving at Trocaire College as their assistant director of veteran services. I am responsible for building and maintaining the programs of the newly created Office of Veteran Services. I anticipate my post-VISTA career to be at a health-oriented refugee-serving non-profit, as I have worked with refugees in the past and find it especially fulfilling.
Health is unrelated to gender, race, wealth, socioeconomic status, and sexuality.
