Dr. Okonmah also has a Master's in Public Health Degree (Leadership Concentration) from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Dr. Okonmah is also an advocate for creating access to dental care for everyone. From 2004-2009, she spent years in Eastern North Carolina supporting public and community health. While there, she worked with others to obtain the initial field data for a pilot program, Into the Mouth of Babes, which aimed to find every child a dental home. She also furthered her passion by researching Access to Dental Care for migrant farmworkers in Eastern North Carolina. Dedicated to giving back to the underserved, she continues to volunteer her dental services in the Community Care Clinic of Rowan County and with the NC Missions of Mercy Clinics. In her free time, Dr. Okonmah loves to spend time with her family, attend church activities, complete home improvements, and organization tasks.
