In Ghana, she helped her dad distribute mosquito nets in the large village that he adopted. She also volunteered at a hospital in Tanzania and visited an orphanage in Kenya.  Later, when she visited Haiti after the 2010 earthquake, she felt God calling her to begin her medical missionary work there.  She visited several times and was inspired to start Global Mustard Seed Missions Inc., whose mission is to work with local doctors and others in developing countries to run mobile medical clinics.  In 2012, as a result of her efforts in Haiti, she won the Oregon Nurse of the Year Award in the category of Community Health. Since 2015, Charmika has worked as a full-time nurse practitioner at the Providence Brain and Spine Institute in Portland, Oregon.
