Stephanie graduated as a Global Health Minor from UCSD in 2018. She transferred to UCSD in the Fall 2013 as a human biology major. During her time at UCSD, she also added global health as a minor so that she could gain a broader understanding of health issues outside of the United States.
For her field experience, Stephanie spent 143 hours in Nairobi, Kenya with Providence Ministries, Inc. DBA Providence Children’s Home. Providence Ministries, Inc. DBA Providence Children's Home provides a home for orphaned girls in Kenya throughout all life stages.
