Why are you going on this trip to Rwanda?
When I first heard about this trip I was so excited at the opportunity, both for Mercy and Kigali. My passion for serving others greatly influenced my interest in participating in such a special occasion. My hope is that this unique opportunity will provide growth for health care in Kigali and Mercy as we learn how to work together.
What are your favorite outside-of-work activities?
I like volleyball, rock climbing, reading and traveling.
