My name is Ashley Bleistein and I am a graduate student at Ithaca College. I received my undergraduate degree from SUNY Buffalo State College in May 2010 majoring in Health and Wellness. During my undergraduate studies, I was accepted into the student exchange program and spent a semester studying Human Movement in Adelaide, Australia. Upon graduation, I set off to spend two years serving in the Peace Corps. I was a Maternal and Child Health volunteer working in Nicaragua. My duties were to educate community members on the importance of adequate nutrition and hygiene practices.
I look forward to completing and receiving my Masters in Health Education to further pursue my career in health and wellness. I hope to become a Certified Health Education Specialist allowing me to work with community outreach programs and a variety of public health initiatives.
