Coordinator, Health Education Outreach

I am a Scripps alum and an HEO veteran – I graduated in 2015 with a B.A. in Public Health (a major I self-designed). I worked as a Peer Health Educator for all four years of my undergrad, and was also involved in Scripps Advocates for Survivors of Sexual Assault, Challah for Hunger, and the Scripps Student Art Collective. I am a licensed HIV Testing Counselor through LA County Department of Public Health and have done mobile rapid testing all over LA county. I also write and volunteer for Scarleteen, one of the internet’s best sources of comprehensive and inclusive sex education for young people. I have a passion for talking with students about what “health and wellness” means to them, and empowering and supporting them in their journey of becoming their best selves. In my spare time, you can find me reading, woodworking, gardening, and going on walks with my adopted dachshund Basil.
