Health and International Health Promotion. Her interest in the international arena began early with the completion of the International Baccalaureate program in high school. This afforded her a unique opportunity to study Arabic in high school and travel abroad to Egypt with the Critical Language and Area Studies Consortium. There she studied Arabic at the American University of Cairo. Her experience abroad, led her to pursue further Arabic language studies and gain training in traditional Islamic Studies in the Middle East. Upon return to the United States, she coordinated various muslim female teen youth camps in Atlanta and taught Arabic and Islamic studies in the community.

While abroad she was particularly influenced by the vast health disparities abroad. She saw an apparent need for quality healthcare and the role female leadership in healthcare could have in impacting these outcomes, which lead to a career in nursing. She completed a Bachelors of Science in Nursing and has worked as a Mother-Baby nurse in Atlanta. Her work as a postpartum nurse led to an interest in education, teaching and health promotion. She completed a Master degree in Public Health in 2011 and provided community-based breast and cervical cancer education. She also worked in community-level breast health program planning and evaluation.

In hopes of fulfilling her career goals of positively impacting health outcomes here and abroad, she is currently pursuing a second graduate degree in nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner and Doctoral degree in Nursing Practice at Georgia Southern University. As a Family Nurse Practitioner, she hopes to be able to provide culturally and religiously relevant primary care health services locally and abroad in areas with limited or no access to healthcare. She also hopes that upon completion of her doctoral degree, she will be able to add to the body of nursing knowledge and research to improve nursing practice. Her research interests include postpartum depression, chronic hypertension and diabetes, health disparities in underserved communities, breastfeeding, end of life care and cultural and religious factors affecting health decisions.

She currently resides with her husband and children in Atlanta, Georgia. She continues to work as a nurse and as a Clinical Instructor teaching bachelors level nursing students in both a Community Health and Maternal OB course.
