Filling an unexpired term effective October 1, 2022 – June 30, 2023

“I grew up outside the U.S. in Sudan and immigrated in the late nineties. I went to dental school in Boston and practiced dentistry in NJ, NY and OH. However, I was always attracted to the humanities and studies of social sciences…and after 20 years I made the switch, undertaking a masters in social work focused on mental health and substance abuse. This career change coincided with my move to Upper Arlington. Being a first generation African immigrant with Black kids in the school district who were the minority, I realized there are so many experiences and insights I can offer. I love living here and want to join others already working on making UA a community that is more diverse and welcoming, because diversity increases strength and productivity.”
