Ariel Freehill, MSHA

In 2019, Ariel graduated from the university’s College of Applied Health Sciences with a Bachelor of Science in Community Health with a Concentration in Health Planning and Administration. After graduating, she continued her education at Illinois and graduated in 2021 with her Master of Science in Health Administration. 

During her time as a graduate student, she was a teaching assistant for many undergraduate Community Health courses. Throughout her years at Illinois, Ariel has held various jobs and internships in the healthcare administration field and was selected to be an intern with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for the summer of 2020 but was unable to go due to the pandemic. 

Ultimately her experiences as a teaching assistant sparked a passion to become an instructor and motivate students to make the best out of their time at the University of Illinois.
