Keirsten E. Snover

Anthropologist

Hi! I’m Keirsten, and I’m an Anthropologist. I have 2 Master’s degrees in Anthropology, and I’ve worked as a Medical Anthropologist for the Cleveland Clinic, the #2 hospital in the world. Learn more about me below, or download my curriculum vitae (which is an academic resume)!

A little
about me

I am living with a progressive neuromuscular disease. So, now I use a wheelchair to get around, a feeding tube to eat and drink, and a ventilator to breathe. All this does not stop me from teaching!
