Why did you choose Texas A&M Public Health?

I would encourage students to apply to the Texas A&M University School of Public Health because the school offers programs that not only expose you to a variety of industries, but provide students with opportunities to grow professionally.

My favorite part of the School of Public Health is the ability for me to access an abundance of resources that will help me secure a financially stable job in the future. My experiences in various student organizations and the assistance I have received from faculty are a few of the many resources available to students.

I served as Treasurer for the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP). ASSP provides students with opportunities to network with peers at the school as well as with representatives from employers looking for students with an occupational health and safety background. I enjoyed this student organization because it afforded us the time to discuss emerging topics in this field and pass on resumes to highly competitive companies.

As a recipient of one of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Grants awarded to the School of Public Health, I appreciated the financial security the full-ride scholarship had to offer, and I am also grateful it encourages students to be involved in research. 

With the help of faculty, I was able to secure an internship with HollyFrontier, a petroleum company based in Dallas. Currently, I am an EHS consultant with Berg Compliance Solutions and Berg Environmental Services.
