Becky Payne

Timmy Fellow

Indianapolis, IN
An adoptive Hoosier, Becky comes to Timmy Global Health after a delightfully circuitous few years post-graduation in 2013, a year in which she obtained B.A’s in Spanish, Anthropology, and Arabic with a little French minor on the side from Indiana University.

Naturally, as with all such liberal-arts-focused millennials, Becky graduated with a lot of credits and few real ideas of how to apply these skills to a job that excited her. Luckily, after 5 countries’ worth of studying and working abroad, her goals of international and humanitarian work have finally taken shape and direction (much to her parents’ tangible relief). Becky comes to Timmy from 8 months of teaching English to adult refugees in Cairo, Egypt, eager to pursue a career (and hopefully an MPH!) in sustainable global health for underserved and marginalized populations, most particularly with forced migrants.

When not working with Timmy Global Health, Becky can often be found waiting tables, perusing food blogs with a slightly glazed look in her eyes, huddled in a ball on the floor at the gym, or quite frankly just taking a nap.
