Michelle Picture Cropped

Q. What drew you to be part of CWHC?
A. I was drawn toward CWHC because they do not deny those who cannot pay and they work with trans* people, as well. CWHC also provides alternative medicine, which I am very passionate about.

Q: What is the most rewarding part of being a CWHC Outreach & Education Intern?
A: The Outreach & Education Program works collaboratively as a team, and it was inspiring to be a part of their trainings and classes and to see how a team can come together, regardless of their differences.

Q: What do you hope to do with public health and health education, in the future?
A: I hope to become a Naturopathic doctor, educating and treating individuals in a holistic, passionate way.

Q: What have you most enjoyed about majoring in Community Health and Wellness?
A: The most interesting thing I have learned as a Community Health and Wellness major is that the first step to take, in order to help a specific population, is to find out their needs first.

Q. Tell us one interesting fact about you.
A. I enjoy doing yoga on my free time. Listen to your body- it tells you what it needs.

Q. Who is your feminist hero? Why?
A. Elizabeth Holmes because her dedication and hard work paid off when she became America’s youngest female billionaire, after creating her own company and inventing a device to make blood tests quick and easy. She has inspired me to work hard every day to accomplish my goals.
