After graduating from UCLA in 2009, Jessica Faville completed a year-long Community HealthCorps assignment with a focus on increasing access to care and health outcomes for homeless families in San Francisco. Immediately following, she moved to New York City and to work as a health educator for Care for the Homeless, a non-profit providing healthcare and shelter to NYC's vulnerable populations. During this time, she provided health education counseling and classes, in addition to conducting rapid HIV tests at shelters, soup kitchens and drop in centers. In 2012, she transitioned into a clinic administration role where she contributed to oversight of health compliance, maintenance of medical supply inventory, agency-wide health initiatives and composition of grant applications and reports. With implementation of the Affordable Care Act, she also led a team focused on reaching and enrolling the homeless population into health insurance plans.
Now a student in Yale’s new Accelerated MBA-MPH program Jessica is eager to develop the skills necessary to manage the complex relationships between between health outcomes, quality care and cost.
