WHERE I COME FROM
Before living in Centre County, I spent much of my life in New York. At five years old, I immigrated to Brooklyn, New York, from Haiti (along with my five siblings). I graduated from Brooklyn Technical High School, then attended St. John’s University, where I received a
Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in Chemistry and minoring in Biology. There, I pursued my dream of becoming a doctor, obtaining a medical degree from SUNY Downstate Medical School.
Today, I enjoy reading and writing and am a member of the Nittany Valley Writers Network and other book clubs in the area. I live in Boalsburg, Pennsylvania, with my husband, Michael Feffer.
AN ACTIVE MEMBER OF THE COMMUNITY
During my time here, I have served as the summer swim league’s president, have volunteered as an OB/GYN physician with Centre Volunteers in Medicine, and was a member of the WPSU board’s educational committee.
To help promote health and education throughout Centre County, my husband and I sponsored the Seedlings Project, a program which taught students about genealogy as they discovered how to "find their roots". We also currently sponsor “Health Minute,” a weekly one-minute radio and digital program by WPSU and Penn State College of Nursing. The radio show offers information and strategies for living a healthy life in Centre County.
With your vote, I can continue giving back to this community as a member of State College Area School District's school board.
