Bianca obtained a BS in General Biology and a Master’s in Public Health with a concentration in Community Health and Health Behavior, both from East Carolina University. She is passionate about helping people within her community holistically through empathetic communication, active listening, and necessary advocation. She says, "I have learned so much about what it truly means to be a healthcare provider while working at DukeWELL thus far and hope to continue this education." She aspires to attend PA school in the coming years and will specialize in mental and behavioral health. When she's not juggling work and school, her free time consists of binge watching movies with her dog, nature walks, leisure reading, social media content creating, and working out.
