public health... but the issue is that I don't want to work in what seems to be the stereotypical public health job.. which are community health centers and even hospitals..

You kinda caused this situation yourself. You're getting a degree in public health but you don't want a public health job. Not only that but you don't want to move away from home.

Consultants usually have years and years of experience under their belts.

OP, you should try getting a "stereotypical" public health Job to gain experience, build up your resume, and network. Who knows, you might find a position that is more suited to you later on.

And sorry, moving to Canada is not a viable option right now.

that's great Rockstar! i'm glad things are coming together for you.. 

My undergraduate was premed majoring in biology and bioethics... i decided 4th year I didn't wanna do pre-med anymore (infact i decided i wanted to do business earlier but my parents wouldn't let me switch) anyhoo i figured public health would be the most logical next step... excepttttt it wasn't lol i can't imagine working for a community health center with my classmates

I am looking into consulting.. applied to 3 places and got a second interview at a boutique firm.. i'm also looking into pharmas as well..

Not only that, moving to Canada is not the same as moving to another state, you just can't pack your bags and go, there is a long immigration process.

I am sure you already have but have you looked into health agencies programs the CDC/HHS has the Emerging leaders programs for people with Masters degrees. Have you looked into jobs as Public Health Analyst or Public Health Advisors. Alot of times they have jobs where you are assigned to a state or go overseas.

That, too.
Then you have to have a work permit, in which in some cases you can only use to work for a specific employer.

Plus, the culture shock of a black American, depending on where you move to...I can't even imagine LOL

I'll say this, what's usually very easy in America is like shytting bricks in Canada.
