Stephanie is an M3 at St. George’s University, with a BS in Microbiology from UC San Diego and an MPH in Epidemiology and Global Health from Columbia University. Medicine is her second career after working for a decade as an infectious diseases surveillance epidemiologist. While in Sierra Leone during the 2014-2016 Ebola Outbreak, working for the WHO and CDC, Stephanie decided that disease control and prevention as an epidemiologist was not enough, she wanted to be a healer too. Stephanie plans on a medical career that places a strong emphasis on global health, disaster and emergency humanitarian response, and epidemiological and health system capacity building in low resource areas. In true global health enthusiast fashion, Stephanie is currently completing core rotations in London, England where she is learning the ins and outs of the NHS universal healthcare system. Stephanie is an avid reproductive justice and abortion advocate.
