Louise Stenberg served in the Peace Corps as a Community Health Education Volunteer in Guyana from 2004 to 2006. During her service, she worked with Hope For All, a local NGO that focuses on HIV/AIDS education and services along the Essequibo Coast. This work led to her passion for public health and she went back to school and earned her Master of Public Health degree focused on health behavior and health education from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Soon after graduation, she returned to Guyana and worked with the USAID/Guyana HIV/AIDS Reduction and Prevention Project. Louise returned to her home state of Minnesota where she worked on building the capacity of the public health workforce in Minnesota and North Dakota. She now lives and works in Washington DC where she is a Senior Advisor on the Capacity Development team at Pact.
