I was born in Hamden, CT and attended Hamden High School. After college, I moved to Colorado and wanted to become a nurse. I worked as a clinical assistant for 4 years at a women’s clinic that largely served undocumented women and monolingual Spanish-speakers, and this experience made me more compassionate and painted a picture of how intertwined policy can be with healthcare. While living in CO, I also volunteered for a rape crisis hotline and a nonprofit dedicated to fighting hunger and malnutrition. These experiences combined have encouraged me to pursue a Masters in Social Work and Masters in Public Health, instead of a nursing degree. While completing my degrees part-time,  I also work full-time for UConn Storrs in the Counseling & Mental Health Services department.

I play classical violin and teach yoga. I am also an adult beginner ballet dancer. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking healthy food, listening to podcasts, and riding my bicycle.

The name ‘Sundari’ comes from the Indian word for “beautiful".

I’ve spent over twenty years in various aspects of the information technology field, and have worked with many government and non-government agencies working to build solutions to solve problems and improve business processes.  I’ve studied three world languages and visited many countries as a tourist, including spending a year in Paris as a student.   I visited Haiti after the earthquake in 2012 on a mission trip and my eyes were first opened to the public health needs in a third world country.  I currently volunteer in a few different capacities with the homeless in Hartford, and am starting to get involved with the Underground to combat human trafficking.  Looking forward to leveraging the MPH and by background to make a tangible difference in public health with the most vulnerable populations.

Things I enjoy outside of work and school are to take walks, cycle, oil paint, bake (or rather re-learn how to bake since my celiac diagnosis!), and read.

My drive to pursue my career in public health does not come only from the experiences I have had, but also from the little girl who watched others in her village in Bangladesh grow ill from ailments that could have been easily cured by a medicine that they had little to no access to. I have a passion to work in communities with health disparities and the relationship at the community and organization level. I have had experience working as a medical scribe and a CNA, after which I knew with absolute certainty that I desire to work in that environment. As a medical scribe, at the Emergency Department, I was constantly fascinated with the number of unique cases that come into the ED.

Isha Walawalkar

Degree: B.A. Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Boston University (2018)

Goals:  To pursue an MD and/or a PhD.

Advisor: Audrey Chapman, PhD, MDiv, STM

Year admitted:  2019

The original stimulus for my interest in public health was the 2011 Steven Soderbergh action thriller Contagion. Watching both Marion Cotillard's character as a WHO epidemiologist working to identify patient zero of the depicted viral pandemic, and Jennifer Ehle's portrayal of a research scientist working to develop an efficacious vaccine, cultivated my utter fascination towards the synergistic power of science and medicine in the field.

Of course I did not want my career aspirations to be motivated solely by a sensationalized Hollywood performance, so I nurtured this initial impetus by perusing the works of surgeon and prominent public health researcher, Atul Gawande. I interpreted his detailed and sometimes controversial summaries of why certain community health effort work while others do not as a personal call to action. What appealed to me most was that he defined innovativeness in public health efforts not by the predicted extent of their impact, but by the methods of their delivery to the targeted communities.

In the following years, I made a commitment to understanding the foundation of genetics and molecular biology through my undergraduate studies as well as my concurrent work in academic research labs. In order to maintain and develop my awareness of the workings of healthcare, I volunteered at hospitals and networked with physicians - trauma surgeons and emergency department veterans, alike - to understand their perspective on the state of the medical enterprise today as well as its trajectory in the future.

By working towards a master degree in public health, I aim to prime my knowledge of effective healthcare delivery for a potential career in medicine, and to help guide my interests in basic scientific research that could form the foundation for public health undertakings in the future.

I love learning languages, and am currently fluent in four: English, Marathi, Hindi and Spanish. I am working on my fifth - Russian! I shamelessly enjoy trying and devouring new foods, especially new flavors and cultural fusions. Latest find: Myers+Chang in the Boston South End. The only sport I follow is tennis, except during the olympics, because watching equestrian dressage every four years is somehow equally captivating. My go-to morning espresso drink experience: a quickly, yet delicately brewed and sipped cortado.
