When I came for the interview [at UVA SCPS], I felt right at home. Everyone was really interested in what I had to offer as a person.

Joanna earned her MPH from Emory University and become a statistician at the Institute for Surgical Research (ISR) before joining the Army as an environmental science officer. After several years of service, including a deployment to Afghanistan in 2012 and 2013, her interest shifted from preventative medicine to disease treatment. As a post-baccalaureate pre-med student with SCPS, she is now preparing to become a doctor specializing in internal medicine and infectious disease.
