A little about me

I grew up in Vermont. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History from Williams College. I was president of the photography club and captain of my Division I Alpine Ski Team. During college, I had my first foray in extreme health disparities during an internship in Gambia, Africa studying trachoma the summer after my freshman year. This sparked an interest in public health and during my subsequent college summers, I worked for Public Health Solutions, a public health organization in NYC. I matriculated to Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine after two years of doing research and working as an Alpine ski coach. I am excited to be at the Institute for Family Health for this next step of my training!
