I am a Public Health Official with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. I was born in Washington DC, but spent most of my formative years in Nigeria. In 1991, I moved to Malta where I completed my high school education and then in the mid-late 90s, relocated to the United States where I pursued and obtained a Bachelors and Masters Degree from the University of Maryland. I enjoy, traveling, reading, meeting people, and eating good food.
