I am a Public Health Advocate because I believe that representation and advocacy truly matter to the hearts of those in need. My passion for birth equity and healthy holistic lifestyles are strongly influenced by the disparities that our community is facing. High maternal and infant mortality rates as well as health conditions like high blood pressure are far too common in our community due to many factors. As a Public Health Advocate, I am fueled by my desire to see our mothers, fathers and children have better birth experiences, higher breastfeeding success, and live longer, stronger and healthier lives. Therefore, my goal is to share how important it is for our community to see, hear and feel what peace is like for the mind, body and spirit when true equity and healthy lifestyles are experienced in our families.
