Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: As a fellow at the Disability and Health Branch in the National Center for Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities I understand our program history and efforts to include individuals with disabilities in programmatic activities.

In addition to these experiences, I have a strong methods-based epidemiological background with a Master in Public Health from Emory University.
