Rollins Student Ambassadors Co-Leaders 2021-2022
Managing the Rollins Student Ambassadors program are two ambassador leaders who support, advise, and train.
Hi! My name is Grace Doebler, and I am a second-year student in the Behavioral Social Health Education Sciences (BSHES) Department. Before coming to Rollins to pursue my Masters in P
ublic Health, I attended Christopher Newport University, where I majored in Neuroscience and minored in psychology. I was heavily involved in a Behavioral Neuroscience/Psychology Lab, which highlighted the significant gap in communication and education within the scientific community and the public. The summer before my senior year (2019-2020), I interned at the Concussion Legacy Foundation. I was able to gain hands-on experience in educating priority populations on the dangers of concussions and the long-term effects. Rollins has allowed me to expand my education and skillset in public health. I am currently serving as an intern with the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities on their State Opioid Response Team. Outside of school, I enjoy cooking, exploring Atlanta, and visiting the many parks Atlanta has to offer.
Hi everyone! My name is Marilyn Garcia, and I am a second-year student at Rollins School of Public Health within the Health Policy and Management department, focusing on the management track. I am originally from Los Angeles, California and completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology at California State University, Fullerton (CSUF). While in undergrad, I participated in a healthcare workforce development program where I provided comfort care to patients at a local hospital and learned more about health disparities afflicting the community, especially Latinx individuals. In addition, I was also a Peer Health Educator at CSUF in which I provided resources and guidance for students, specifically on substance use. Prior to enrolling at Rollins, I became certified as an Emergency Medical Technician and worked as a Program Manager for a healthcare workforce development program. At Rollins, I am a Graduate Research Assistant with the School of Medicine, provide support to a Health Information Technology work group to bring more information sessions and events to current students, assisted with the creation of health navigation curriculum with the Latino Community Fund, and mentored high school and undergraduate students through the Emory Pipeline Collaborative Program. On my free time, I enjoy discovering new hiking trails, trying new coffee shops, and traveling (my goal is to visit all 50 states!). Feel free to reach with any questions you may have!
