    My name is Jolie Siegel and I am a first year Graduate Student at Rollins School of Public Health. Following graduation, I aspire to work in an international position where I can actively help in fighting a global healthcare threat, such as infectious or chronic diseases.

    I received my bachelors degree in biology and psychology in May 2015 from the State University of New York at Geneseo. Following graduation, I served as an AmeriCorps VISTA Fellow at the Albany Police Athletic League. At this position I had the role of Volunteer Coordinator and was responsible for recruiting volunteers, writing grants, advertising events using social media and designing the organization website.

    From September 2016-July 2017, I worked as a Language and Culture Assistant at the bilingual primary school, CEIP Laura Garcia Noblejas y Brunet, in Madrid, Spain. At this position, I taught English to Spanish children ages 6-12 years and educated Spanish professionals on career specific English vocabulary.

    During my first year of graduate school at Emory University, I worked as a graduate research assistant in the department of epidemiology. At this position I was responsible for formulating grants, performing literature review and data management. I am currently interning at the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases at the World Health Organization. I will be working to encourage international collaboration and formulate a curriculum for future interns.
