Hi, I’m Theo! I’m an Outreach Specialist at H.O.P.E. I’m originally from OKC, but Tulsa has been my home since 2020. I started working for H.O.P.E. in July of 2022.
I was drawn to this work because I knew it was an opportunity to help people who may be experiencing barriers preventing them from receiving healthcare. When I was less monetarily stable, I directly benefited from services provided by organizations like H.O.P.E. so I wanted to pay it forward.
If I could tell one thing to someone that’s thinking about getting tested, I would say: being nervous is normal. Knowing your status can help you feel empowered and armed with information to keep yourself and your partners safe.
One song that makes you dance any time you hear it?
