Educational Background
Sc.B Brown University

Why did you join NHC?
I joined NHC because I would like to learn more about health disparities in the US and to help reduce barriers in healthcare access.

What are your plans after NHC?
I plan to attend medical school next year and I am considering pursuing an MPH degree as well.

What sparked your interest in community service?
I believe it is extremely important to provide services to those with limited resources.  My past volunteer work at Hope Clinic, a free clinic in Providence, RI motivated me to pursue a health-related service position this year.

What excites you the most about serving in Philadelphia?
I am excited for the opportunity to advocate for a low-income community in Philadelphia and to assist patients in navigating the complexities of our healthcare system.
