Shawn’s goal in life is to enrich his global experience and work with populations that need help to alleviate the burden of disease and poverty. He has obtained his Bachelor’s in Psychology and is currently working on his Master’s in Public Health with a concentration in Epidemiology. His strong desire to join in the fight against poverty and health disparities has aspired him to pursue a career in public health. Shawn hopes to draw from his previous experiences volunteering and working in the U.S. healthcare system to expand his knowledge and expertise out into global health advocacy projects. Shawn’s experiences with the underprivileged around Tampa Bay have given him the strength and tools to continue his work in the emergency room at Lakeland Regional Hospital for the past seven years. Shawn hopes to serve in the Peace Corps after graduation from University of South Florida.
