I interned at the Oregon Health Authority with the Acute and Communicable Disease Prevention Section. At the OHA, I assisted on investigations that linked live poultry exposure to Salmonellosis and performed an analysis of Cryptosporidiosis cases in Oregon.
I am looking forward to moving to Seattle and exploring the city! I hope to find a job as an epidemiologist or as a data analyst in research. I am also considering pursuing a PhD in a few years.
The Epidemiology Department always hosts the best pizza parties, and I will miss all of the faculty and students!
Dr. Ellen Smit always knows how to bring out the best in her students. She knows how to challenge us and is always there to support us.
