A little about me

I was born and raised in San Francisco. After receiving my BA in Neuroscience from Barnard College, I worked for Project Renewal on their Mobile Medical Vans, where I developed my passion for community medicine and working with vulnerable populations. I attended the Sackler School of Medicine in Tel Aviv, where I explored my love of family medicine, working with underserved populations and travelling the world. In my free time, you can find me traveling to new cities, spending time with family, or dancing my heart out in the nearest Zumba class.

Why I love my job

I am very excited to move back to New York to join the Institute community. I look forward to continuing to learn about healthcare gaps and how we can use medicine as a tool for social justice.
