The Next Frontier

This fall I am returning to school, having found what I believe will be a trade that will best allow me to travel, contribute meaningfully to wherever the world takes me, and write: I am pursuing degrees in Nursing and Public Health at Johns Hopkins University. After working this year with many of the faculty and staff at the JHU School of Nursing (SON), I am thrilled to be joining the company of such adventurous, passionate, and committed people–including faculty like Beth Sloand, whose work in Haiti I have already chronicled in the Bangor Daily News, and Nancy Glass, whose presentation last fall on her work in the Democratic Republic of Congo had me slack-jawed with admiration.

One of the nice things about Hopkins is how flexible they are; there is room for time-off, part-time, full-time, and everything in between, and the school is very encouraging of global health experience and study abroad. Who knows where this may take me!
