A little about me

I was born in West Point, NY to a military family, but was raised in the south. After college, I spent 2.5 years in South America as a Peace Corps volunteer and then went on to study epidemiology. During my graduate studies, I spent two summers in Nicaragua studying chronic kidney disease in sugarcane farmers, and one summer at a migrant farm worker health center in rural Georgia. I am also passionate about improving healthcare access for the LGBTQ+ population. I created my medical school’s first ever LGBTQ+ module, aimed at preparing future physicians for LGBTQ+ patients.

Why I love my job

I do this work because people deserve to have control and power over themselves regardless of the systems they were born into.
