rebecca-denning-photo-webRebecca is a native of Bigfork, Montana and completed her undergraduate degree in biology at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Washington, in 2013.  Her career goal is to provide people with compassionate and comprehensive healthcare, along with appropriate education about how their bodies work and how to care for them properly. She plans to pursue education and training as a Physicians Assistant and is also interested in obtaining a public health degree.

“Since I was 14, I have had a heart for Africa, specifically, Kenya,” explains Rebecca. “Since that time, I have pursued and explored that interest. I have spent over 10 years considering how my enthusiasm for medicine and my passion for Kenya may fit together. Tenwek is, I believe, God’s way of helping me combine the two.”

As FOT welcomes Rebecca, we also extend our deepest thanks to Joel White, who has served as the FOT intern at Tenwek for the past year. Joel left Kenya in July with plans to pursue a degree in hospital administration with an eye towards future mission work.
