Why did you choose McCourt? I chose McCourt for its location, the focus on quantitative skills, and the experiences of the professors. My McCourt degree equipped me with both the hard facts and the concepts needed to work effectively in health policy in both DC and now back in my home state of Tennessee. I love The Sycamore Institute—a relatively new organization in Tennessee—because it combines a nonpartisan voice with the power of robust policy and data analysis towards a mission of sound, sustainable policies that improve the health and prosperity of all Tennesseans. We are working to change how policy issues are debated in Tennessee.
What was the best part of your experience? Learning from professors that were doing the work everyday.
Undergraduate university, degree, and major: Lipscomb University, BA in Political Science
