PaHoua has over 10 years of public health experience, including the fields of sexual violence, aging and disabilities services, teaching, and global health advocacy. She has a master’s in public health administration and policy, focusing on sexual violence as a public health issue. As a sexual assault advocate, she provided direct services to victim/survivors, ran support groups, co-coordinated the multidisciplinary protocol team, evaluated program data, and served as an Interim Program Director. Her person-centered advocacy has also been foundational to her work as a small business owner, where she ran a home health care agency supporting elderly people and people with disabilities with personal care and home services. Her love of learning led her to teach Foundations of Public Health as an adjunct professor and volunteer with a variety of organizations and activities in global health advocacy. She now enjoys spending her time walking with her border collie Chester, sketching, and resting.
