Quintella Cobb is a University of Michigan Alumna with a Bachelor of Arts in Gender & Health and a proud member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. Through her studies, she examined how the intersectionality of identities, history, and power dynamics shape social perceptions and effect health. As a Program Coordinator of Sexperteam, a sexual health peer educator group at the University of Michigan, Quintella trained students on safer sex and healthy relationships. She worked on a "Talk About Wellness" project with a Race, Ethnicity, and Well-being team and conducted focus groups to obtain information on student experiences to adjust and innovate health and well-being programs, services, and resources.
After college, Quintella moved to Lesotho, a southern Africa country, to work with the Peace Corps. Throughout her time there, she co-led workshops, co-coordinated a World AIDS Day event in which 100+ community members attended, and worked in the adolescent center of her local hospital.
Aside from her work, she loves community service, cats, comics, yoga, drawing, singing, and dancing. She is excited to work at The Well for Health Promotion at Tulane and will be focusing on sleep, stress management, and mental well-being programming.
