Maya Saint Germain graduated magna cum laude from Boston University with a B.S. in computer engineering. While there, she partnered with medical students in Zanzibar, Tanzania, for the design and development of a medical device for maternal mortality prevention. After graduating in 2016, she joined Philips Electronics where she worked as a technical specialist supporting patient monitoring sales teams. Most recently, she served as a Maternal and Child Health Volunteer with the Peace Corps in Rwanda. Her service was centered on community-driven malnutrition interventions for pregnant women and children under the age of two. Learning the Rwandan language of Kinyarwanda was one of the most challenging and rewarding aspects of her service. Maya is eager to incorporate her technical skills and interest in engineering and design for global development into her studies at Jackson. Her other interest areas include U.S. foreign policy in Sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean and maternal and child health policy.
