Hello everyone! This is my first year as a Senior Peer Assistant and I couldn’t be more thrilled to work in this position. This past summer I worked at Northwell Health, the largest healthcare provider in New York State, as a healthcare management intern at Zucker Hillside Hospital, a behavioral health facility. Some projects I worked on include streamlining the process of outpatient services and identifying the problems of patient access to care from an administrative and customer perspective. As an industrial engineering major, many of the process and quality improvement tools I learned in engineering provided me with a great framework on how to tackle my projects. Hopefully when I graduate, I can continue to work in the healthcare industry as a healthcare administrator or quality manager. Outside of school, I participate on Binghamton’s Ballroom Dance Team, love cooking new foods, and play tennis when the weather’s nice.
