Jazmine “Jazz” Quintana graduated from Florida State University with her Bachelor of Science in Psychology in April 2016. Jazmine worked in the FSU Psychology Clinic, as well as the Hammock Lab of Social Neuroscience. She conducted research with both the Psychology Clinic and the Hammock Lab, ranging from topics such as suicide risk assessment and sleep fragmentation on social behavior and parvalbumin development.
Outside of the MPH program, she works with the UF Mobile Outreach Clinic as their clinical research and grants coordinator, as well as a site officer for some of the clinic sites. The Mobile Clinic provides free medical services to underserved communities in the Alachua County area, allowing Jazmine to see the positive effects of public health programs daily.

Following her MPH, she aims to pursue her MS in Physician Assistant studies, in order to assist in delivering healthcare to underserved patients. Her hobbies include kayaking, eating, and hiking. She hopes to become scuba certified by the end of her first year of graduate school!
