SALVATION ARMY STEERING COORDINATOR
Mina is a M2 from Yardley, Pennsylvania. She graduated from Villanova University with a business degree in accounting. After a few years of being unfulfilled working in various fields from real estate to academic advising, Mina decided to pursue medicine and returned to school to complete pre-med prerequisite courses. Before starting medical school, she gained experience as a volunteer EMT on a hometown EMS squad, an emergency department technician at Penn, and in fetal surgery research at CHOP. In her clinical experiences, Mina saw how people with a history of substance use were often stigmatized in health care. A desire to provide non-judgemental care to these patient populations and to serve those who are often marginalized inspired her to join HOP and, specifically, the Salvation Army Adult Rehab Center.
