Wits Reproductive Health and HIV Institute (Wits RHI)

mHealth Project Manager

It's great to see the happy faces and satisfaction of the women and men who have enrolled with our mHealth services. Simple 160-character text messages or Internet mobile sites can improve their quality of life that allows them to become more empowered by making informed decisions and taking ownership of their own health. MAMA and B-Wise are examples of these programs.

Global Health Corps (GHC) / Inter-American Development Bank (IDB)

Social Protection and Health Fellow

Along with almost the 100 GHC fellows from my class, we individually worked with our partner organizations towards improving the quality of life of our beneficiaries. At the IDB, I focused on the Mesoamerican region, the poorest in the region tackling maternal and child health issues by reducing gaps in health services and improving access to care (Salud Mesoamerica 2015).

National Yang-Ming University

MSc. Public Health, International Health

Changing careers was a hard decision to make, but the program, the professors, the guidance and the courses I took at NYMU re-assured me that I had made the right decision. Professor Song Lih Huang's International Health class was inspiring, provoking and called students to action by always seeking social justice within the health arena.

Noven Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Associate Research Engineer

It was at Noven where I focused on the development of pharmaceutical products within the women's health, mental health and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory fields. One of my developments was the Levonorgestrel Transdermal Drug Delivery System, which is a U.S. patented patch that could be used as a birth control method for more than 3 days.

Drexel University

BSc. Biomedical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering

Drexel was the place where I developed my analytical and research skills. It was there where I became interested in the biomedical research field seeking for new solutions and approaches that could enhance and improve people's lives, especially their health.
