Why did you choose Texas A&M Public Health?

My youngest child was three months old when I first arrived. With the help of many faculty members, I was able to quickly adjust and thrive at the School of Public Health.

I completed a project with the Albert Schweitzer Fellowship, which funds projects that serve people and offers prevention education to those in underserved areas. My project organized a prenatal workshop for mothers in the Brazos Valley and surrounding area. We taught mothers and pregnant women about child abuse prevention methods and prenatal health education. I partnered with Scotty’s House, a child advocacy center, and the Prenatal Clinic to carry out the workshops, which were provided in the Brazos Valley.

When I first got here, I also noticed places around campus that lacked resources such as changing tables for babies in the bathrooms. I used A&M as a case study and conducted a survey to better understand what resources student mothers at Texas A&M need.

My husband and his family really pushed me to attend A&M because of the prestigiousness, affordability and research. I was a part of many projects that have hopefully had a positive impact on different groups in the area. I have a passion for promoting the health of children and mothers, and my projects and involvement at the School of Public Health allowed me to accomplish this goal.

I am the Founder & CEO of the Educate, Direct, Empower & Nurture (EDEN) Foundation.
